This tool was effective for providing a checklist for a course in development or in use. Simple to use and navigate.

This tool appears to be a good starting point for online planning and design. FGCU's Principles of Design provides additional support for the designer with little background in education.

I rated this material as a prospective reviewer for a Quality Matters/MERLOT project.  I find that a checklist, while appealing visually and easy to use, may be lacking in detail.  I might suggest that this checklist include links to Florida Gulf Coast University’s ‘Principles of Online Design’ at key points where further description or examples might be helpful. Additional glossing of some educational ‘jargon’ might make this tool for easily used by those without an education background.
