File and Course Information Management for Online
Courses
  • Dr. Joan D. McMahon
  • Professor of Human Resource Development
  • Towson University, Towson, MD 21252

After identifying 3 problem areas in File/Course
management, you should
  • Realistically evaluate several solutions for each
    and
  • Rank them for feasibility and action.

3
Task 1
  • In groups of 3
  • Using sticky notes, identify problems in
    file/course management that apply to you.
  • Post these sticky notes on the newsprint.
  • Categorize them.

4
How Many of You
  • Use similar handouts for many courses
  • Shareable Content Objects(SCO)
  • or
  • Re-usable Learning Objects (RLO)

What title would you give that folder on your
desktop?

The Biggest Headaches are

  • Files you use for every course you teach
  • Folders reflecting the Tasks of Teaching

  • Administrative Issues

11
Create a Master Course Site
  • Consider placing all your generic - always used
    files in a Master Course Site.
  • Then have the administrator copy your course for
    any new courses you create.

12
2. Syllabus
13

4. Organizing Content
  • Folders per Topic
  • Unique only to that content
  • Modules
  • Create a Module template
  • Where do Shared Images
  • go?

24
5. Organizing assignments, exams, projects,
evaluations, assessments.
Make sure you copy your course objectives from
the syllabus into each assignment Do
they match?
25
Task 2
  • Problem In groups of 3, discuss the following
  • In Course A, you find that students arent
    writing to your standards or the standards of the
    department. You create a rubric on writing. You
    post this to your Blackboard/WebCT course. Where
    did this file reside on your desktop for loading?

26
Task 2a
  • Next Part of the Problem
  • After using the rubric, you realize that it
    goes beyond the confines of Course A and also
    fits other courses you teach. What changes would
    you make in the file location based on re-using
    it for other courses? Where will this file
    reside on your desktop for loading?

27
Task 2b
  • Bigger Part of the Problem
  • After using the rubric, you realize that it
    goes beyond the confines of Course A and also
    fits other courses you teach and the department
    agrees to also use it to standardize departmental
    minimum writing standards. But they want to make
    some minor revisions to it which you agree to
    handle. Where will this file reside on your
    desktop for easier revision for all your courses
    over time and for easier loading online?

28
How will students put their names on their
papers?

assignment name, and the file type (extension).
