Taking your course online may seem like a daunting task, but it can be simple. Just follow these 10 easy steps, and you’ll be on your way to creating a successful online component for your course.

1. Prepare Yourself
Educate yourself by reading articles about web-based training, instructional design, technology education, and online learning. Practice using the software. Take a training course, do a tutorial, or explore the program. Locate and introduce yourself to the Blackboard System Administrator on your campus. Ask the System Administrator to create (or help you create) a user account, password, and a blank course Web site for you. Understand hardware and software specifications. Make sure your computer is set up with the correct requirements (such as browser). Again, refer to your System Administrator if you need assistance.

2. Prepare Your Materials
Gather your course materials and content in a central location. Include items such as handouts, slide shows, syllabus, overheads, lecture notes, projects, assessments, and discussion topics. Determine what formats your materials exist in. Take note of items already in electronic formats such as word processing documents, spreadsheets, and slides. Accommodate different types of learners. Make sure visual learners have graphics and text they can see to foster learning. Provide narration and text for verbal learners. Identify measurable course objectives. These should incorporate materials delivered both in class and online. Determine what core competencies and knowledge students will need to meet these objectives.
