Designing an online course for women learners

1. Overview of the Course


Online learning is increasingly found in every area of education, from schools to workplace skills training. Even where teaching is primarily ‘face to face’, online tools and interactions have become a key part of the learning experience. If you work in education or training at any level, online or face to face, you need to develop new skills and understanding in order to make the right decisions, make the most of the opportunities, and overcome common challenges.

In this free course, we share the basic knowledge needed to produce an effective online course. You will hear about the experiences of three Open University educators and learn about some tools that can help you design an online course. You will also learn useful methods for testing out these new ideas.
