I’ve just completed a Coursera course on Online Teaching. This was my fourth Mooc but the first one that I completed throughout as I signed up for the certificate!! (to be more motivated). I decided to go through the entire experience as an online learner to find out how a course design will help me achieve the expected outcomes. What I’d like to share with you is my observation on the course design.
Below is a list of what I found effective:
I specifically found the peer and self-assessment exercise very useful to help me see the gaps in my responses. We had to assess assignments of three peers assigned to us followed by a self-assessment to complete each assignment.
All in all, being a learner gave me valuable insights into my own course design.
