Building Courses with OERs in Schoology: A Step-by-Step Video Guide

Posted in Schoology | November 24, 2017

I have cooked scrambled eggs all wrong my entire life. It wasn't until I watched a video where Gordon Ramsay explained why overcooking eggs (and even salting them too early) strips out all I have come to love about this morning staple. 

But Ramsay didn't just explain this concept, he demonstrated it. And it forever changed my (breakfast) life.

Okay, but what does all this have to do with building courses? Bradley Kemp, former Senior Instructional Designer at Schoology, hosted a two-part LEAP Webinar where he and his guests, Instructional Coach Anne Cameron and Adjunct Professor Angela Lohr, build a course from scratch.

During these videos, you may have the kind of life-changing epiphany I had—one that could alter the course of you and your students' future, not just your breakfasts.

Building Courses with OERs Part 1: Planning and Initial Building Blocks

In this first video, Bradley, Anne, and Angela discuss the planning phase of course design. They'll also demonstrate the mechanics of actually building a course template using OERs.


Building Courses with OERs Part 2: Designing, Differentiating, and Enhancing

In Part 2 of this two-part series, Bradley and Anne continue working on their course but explore more advanced concepts including sharing out that course template, building in differentiation using groups, and making content more interactive.
