Block System
  • Each cohort of students pass through one course (block) at a time.
  • In order to move to the next course students must pass each course with a 90%
  • Students are given an opportunity to reassess if they do not pass
  • Library instruction is not included on assessments in the nursing program but is included in pharmacy.

Technical Challenges
  • Learning Captivate Software without formal training
  • Sharing 3 laptops with Captivate Software

I share an office at my university. I needed to reserve study room space at my library to record.

  • A new learning management system- ANGEL
  • Transferring files using FTP
  • Getting all the stakeholders together
    • Nursing
    • Library
    • Orbis
    • Challenges
      • Learning new software
      • A new LMS
      • Recruiting pre-testers before content went live.
course development
Course Development
  • Challenge of moving in-class active learning activities to an online environment
  • Moving planning curriculum elements from USN model to Orbis model
  • Meeting weekly deadlines
  • Learning a new tool Adobe Captivate 4.0
  • Time crunch
  • Converting lessons and coming up with ideas

in the end because of time we stuck with a heavy text based model

  • Recruiting pre-testers to thoroughly test the course before the go live date

  • What’s in it for me? This is ultimately what students want to know what is in it for them when they register for a class
  • Even though face to face
