The content area for our group is inside a database (“Curriculum Central”) being introduced to the University of Hawaii system, a database to record and store course outlines. For the purposes of ETEC 750B we will use the test version of the database which is located at http://cctest.its.hawaii.edu:8080/central/core/cas.jsp The database is in use at a few campuses in the UH system: UH Hilo, Kapi’olani Community College, Leeward Community College, and UH Maui College. The database is soon to be piloted by the UHM College of Education, Windward Community College, and Kaua`iCommunity College.
The population being taught are college faculty, tenured and untenured, all with a minimum of a master’s degree in their content area, some with a PhD. No assumption can be made for computer skills, organizational skills, or logic skills that the faculty may or may not have. Previous experience has shown that even faculty who teach computer courses often have difficulty the first few times that they encounter the three questions that we will focus on in the project. Previous experience has shown that some faculty may not have organized their course content around the competencies to be attained by the students. Some faculty may not yet have thought about and connected how their course content may support degree or certificate learning outcomes.
Our project will focus on how to prepare three types of course outlines used by Kapi’olani Community College, a progression of whole problems. The skills used in answering the questions build in increasing complexity. Basic navigation skills learned previously are assumed. The project will focus on specific sections of outlines to (1) make a course inactive, (2) update a course that exists in skeletal version, or (3) create a new course. The instructional materials prepared for ETEC 750B will focus on the tasks expected of the course proposer rather than the tasks for course reviewers and tasks for course approvers.

The adult 'i'iwi is mostly fiery red, with black wings and tail and a long, curved, salmon-colored bill used primarily for drinking nectar. The contrast of the red and black plumage with surrounding green foliage makes the 'i'iwi one of the most easily seen Hawaiian birds. Younger birds have a more spotted golden plumage and ivory bills and were mistaken for a different species by early naturalists on Hawai'i. The 'i'iwi, even though it was used in the feather trade, was less affected than the Hawai'i mamo because the former was not as sacred to the Hawaiians. The 'i'iwi's feathers were highly prized by Hawaiian ali'i (nobility) for use in decorating 'ahu'ula (capes) and mahiole (helmets), and such uses gave the species its scientific name: vestiaria, which comes from the Latin for clothing, and coccinea means scarlet-colored. The bird is also often mentioned in Hawaiian folklore. The Hawaiian song "Sweet Lei Mamo" includes the line "The i'iwi bird, too, is a friend". The bird is capable of hovering in the air, much like hummingbirds. Its peculiar song consists of a couple of whistles, the sound of balls dropping in water, the rubbing of balloons together, and the squeaking of a rusty hinge.
