Create Custom Learning Paths in D2L using Release Conditions
 

Release conditions allow you to create a custom learning path through the materials in your course. When you attach a release condition to an item, users cannot see that item until they meet the associated condition. For example, you could attach a release condition to the second topic in your course’s content area that would hide that topic until users viewed the topic before it. Or you could create a condition that requires users to view a content topic before gaining access to a quiz, or one that required them to post to a discussion topic before they could see a content module. In this webinar, we will discuss/demonstrate:

  • How Release Conditions work
  • D2L Tools that support release conditions
  • How to access Release Conditions
  • Release condition types
  • Best practices for creating release conditions

Intended Audience: EIU faculty and staff

If you would like to add release conditions to your course, register for the hands-on “Make and Take” webinar on Wednesday, March 3, at 2:00 PM. The “Make and Take” workshop is a companion session for this webinar. In the “Make and Take”, we will guide you step-by-step through the process of adding release conditions to your course in D2L.

The webinar will conducted through Zoom at the time listed. The Zoom meeting link will be sent to registrants in the confirmation and reminder emails. We recommend saving the meeting link on your calendar for easy access on the day of the webinar.

Online Course Development Institute (OCDi)
 

The Online Course Development Institute was established to provide faculty at Eastern Illinois University a professional development opportunity to experience best practices in online teaching and guidance in quality online course development. The OCDi is for EIU faculty developing or redesigning an online course and teaching online for the first time at EIU.

GOAL

The goal of the OCDi is to provide faculty with suggested guidelines and training necessary to develop a quality online course which will enhance the online teaching and learning experiences of both faculty and students and encourage effective engagement and collaboration in the online environment.

EIU ONLINE COURSE POLICY

“All instructors of online courses must submit proof of having completed the Online Course Development Institute (OCDI), Illinois Online Network’s “Master Online Teacher" certificate or another documented and equivalent training activity before teaching the courses/sections for the first time.” The EIU Online Course Policy can be found at https://www.eiu.edu/eiucaa/OnlineCoursePolicy.pdf.

OBJECTIVES

  1. The participant will be able to develop a course for online delivery using standards presented for effective online course design.
  2. The participant will be able incorporate strategies for effective online teaching and learning.
  3. The participant will be able to integrate technologies that will engage students in the online environment and align with the course objectives.
  4. The participant will be able to meet the university requirement for teaching an online course.

TOPICS

The course contains eight content modules. The topics of each module are listed below.

  1. Overview, Introduction, and Learner Support
  2. Learning Objectives and Instructional Design
  3. Accessibility and Usability
  4. Instructional Materials
  5. Course Activities and Learner Interaction
  6. Assessment and Measurement
  7. Course Technology
  8. Online Teaching Strategies

FORMAT

The OCDi Training Course is an online, self-directed course. Participants work through the content modules at their own pace. However, the facilitator is always available to answer questions, provide consultation, review assignments, and post grades and feedback. The course includes online activities, online resources, technology tutorials, and an online synchronous discussion scheduled at the participant’s convenience.

TIME REQUIREMENT

I am often asked the time requirement necessary to complete the OCDi training which is a difficult question to answer. The training originated as an 8-week face-to-face course followed by the completion of the online course development. The same course components remain but the course has been developed into a self-directed, online course. Because the course is self-paced, completion time often depends on many factors including the motivation, technology skills, experience, and time demands of the person completing the training.
