One page site that's not an indepedent source but related to the students at the CC. Simple and straightforward without interactive or link applications.
Good primer for those taking their first online course, or even, for instructors to know what's important to their students.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
Provides a heads-up for the first time distance-learner.
Target Student Population:
Any student who is taking an online college-level course.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Basic navigation of a website will apply to users.
Quick study, something you could hand out or link to your class so they get a ready understanding of what's involved.
Other sites do this much better or with more thoroughness as David points out. The self-pacing is a question that needs more attention, certainly. Also, some examples are needed.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
Common sense approaches.
The weakness as a teaching tool is in its design, really as part of a larger site. This page is only one aspect and it isn't approached with much depth, so it can only be recommended as a primer.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
I agree it's about as easy to get around as it gets.
Lacks interactive component.
Other Issues and Comments:
Provides a good base line starting point.
