The Challenge

Amidst a surge of technology-savvy students enrolling in universities, the State of Ohio recognized the imperative to expand online course offerings to accommodate the evolving needs of learners. However, a significant hurdle emerged: more time and resources to ensure the practical training of instructors and professors in online teaching methodologies.

The solution

In response to this pressing challenge, Designing Digitally Inc. devised an innovative web-based training module tailored explicitly to “training the trainers” in online instruction. Leveraging state-of-the-art browser-friendly technologies, the module featured meticulously crafted instructional chapters covering essential facets of effective online teaching. Topics such as Copyright and Intellectual property, Facilitation Techniques, Pedagogy, and standards, The Role of the Online Instructor, and Evaluation and assessment were tracked through learning analytics, drawing insights from collaboration with the Ohio Board of Regents and esteemed professors statewide.

Central to the module’s efficacy were progressive streaming videos showcasing interviews with instructors who had encountered successes and failures in online teaching. These firsthand accounts provided invaluable insights and practical strategies for navigating the complexities of online instruction. Additionally, each lesson was supplemented with PDF charts and training aids, enriching the learning experience and empowering educators to apply newfound knowledge in their online courses.

The training program was developed by Designing Digitally to be standalone and SCORM compliant, facilitating seamless integration into Learning Management Systems utilized by Ohio’s universities. State-funded institutions swiftly adopted the course into their professional development programs, allowing instructors to engage in self-paced learning and earn essential professional development credits at their convenience. The module emerged as a timeless resource by prioritizing pedagogical principles over technological intricacies, setting foundational guidelines, and empowering educators to deliver high-quality online instruction.

Implementing the web-based training module has proven to be a resounding success for the Ohio Board of Regents. Continuously utilized by educators across the state, the module continues to equip instructors with the requisite skills and insights to navigate the digital landscape effectively. As a cornerstone of professional development initiatives, this transformative solution underscores Ohio’s commitment to fostering innovative and inclusive learning environments, poised to shape the future of education for years to come.
