What is Your Experience with Online Learning?

What does it take to create an effective online training experience?

Classes are moving online! But is that a good thing? Many are complaining that instructors don’t know how to use the technology, and it might be leaving a bad impression of online/distance learning.

My guest in this episode is Dr Jennifer Summerville, an instructor for my master’s degree program in Instructional Design. Having been involved in online course development for over 20 years, she trains teachers and institutions how to develop and deliver online instruction.

Right now, what we are seeing is a reaction, as many are struggling to simply re-create the classroom in an online environment. As the demand increases for online education, instructional design will hold a key place in the ongoing development of effective educational experiences.
