Design matters: How resources and experiences impact learning in online courses



Teaching in online settings offers opportunities to reach far more students and engage them in different learning experiences. The challenge of designing learning experiences in online settings can be approached in a variety of ways, using different technological tools such as videos in very different ways. Online resources and experiences can be used to supplement face-to-face instruction, as well as be packaged together as entire courses. The presenters in this session share some of the key aspects of their designs that have led to successful online learning experiences for university students in statistics courses, as well as statistics teachers in grades 6-college in a course designed to enhance pedagogical approaches to statistics.
