Overview

Creating Your Signature Online Course guides educators through the development of engaging, efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and narrative-rich online learning spaces. Despite the availability of numerous visual and textual communication tools and user-friendly learning management systems, instructors and support staff need concrete strategies for designing digital and online higher education courses that emphasize the appeal and relevance of the subject, reflect the instructor’s presence, and inspire students. Grounded in research and theory from psychology, instructional design, user and learner experience design, graphic arts, and storytelling, this book accessibly and practically showcases how teachers can leverage effective multimedia resources alongside their own expertise to meet students’ needs. These fresh insights into instructional goals, learner identity, tonal qualities, narrative aesthetics, student feedback, and more reveal how charismatic virtual course designs can empower learners and tap into their mindsets and literacies.
