RIDT 120

Learning Management Systems for Course Development

This course will introduce students to Learning Management Systems (LMS) as the primary content authoring tool for online instructional design. Students will compare the feature sets of a number of LMS platforms, and evaluate best practices and workflows for authoring within such systems. Students will explore methods for course facilitation using LMS-driven tools, and examine how the LMS can support both synchronous and asynchronous approaches to online learning. Then, as course creators, students will work in teams and use an LMS to author and build their own online course content. Through hands-on practice, discussion, and critique, students will practice applying sound instructional design practices in tool selection; effective course design; and facilitation of a collaborative and constructive learning environment.
