Project Description

Sheri Ross, Associate Professor of Library and Information Science Program, received $1,100 to transform a required course from face-to-face to an online environment. The outcome of the project will be a developed D2L template consisting of a syllabus, video lectures with accompanying PowerPoint slides, quizzes, interactive assignments, discussion boards, and an integrated grade book.

The MLIS Program has been experimenting with hybrid courses and has found that some students prefer the online mode of teaching and learning. This project will be the first attempt to build a course to be delivered entirely online. We will be offering the online version as an option along with the face-to-face version. The launch of the online version of the Knowledge Organization is set for the summer semester of 2018. Once familiarity with the tools and techniques for online course delivery has been established, I will be able to develop additional courses; I plan to build an online environment for our required Research Methods course over the summer of 2018, to be taught the following fall semester.
