Blended and Online Learning Design is a guide to creating digital learning content at Stanford. It walks you through the design process from beginning to end and currently consists of the following modules:
Introduction: How do I navigate these modules? What resources does Stanford provide for me?
Planning Your Course: How do I get started with creating my course? What platforms are available? What tools can I use?
Designing Blended Courses: How do I design an effective course with both online and face-to-face components?
Designing for All Learners: How do I design inclusive and accessible course content?
Presenting Content Online: How can I most effectively use videos, slides, HTML, and other media to present course content?
Creating Assessments: What types of assessments are available and how can I use them most effectively?
Fostering Social Presence & Motivation Online: How do I build genuine community to keep students motivated?
These resources were developed by the Stanford Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning.
These resources are designed for Stanford faculty and staff members who are involved with creating online instructional content. We will assume that you have experience teaching on campus, but not online.
On average, each module should take from 1 to 3 hours to complete in its entirety.
