3 Ideas For Your Online Course

A fresh set of eyes can often illuminate overlooked aspects of any project, and suggest improvments. So, why not apply that process to online teaching? If you're looking to improve your online course, or would like some new eyes to take a look at an existing course site, the 3 Ideas service can help!

What is 3 Ideas?

3 Ideas is a voluntary service for faculty to request instructional design assistance, including constructive feedback on the design of your online course. With 3 Ideas you'll receive three easy and effective suggestions for making the online learning experience better for both you and your students.

What kind of ideas will be suggested?

Suggestions from 3 Ideas typically include things such as:

  • Supply a clear grading rubric so students know how you'll be grading their discussion posts
  • Avoid posting material using Word docs if that information can easily be posted using Blackboard's own tools
  • Personalize! Record a short video introduction to your course or do video intros for individual units if you're using a pre-packaged set of lessons from a textbook publisher
  • Additional suggestions at no extra charge!
