Evolutionary course development in eLearning

Martin, Glyn and Heap, Nick (2006). Evolutionary course development in eLearning. In: 22nd Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning, 2-4 Aug 2006, Madison, Wisconsin, USA.


Our shared experience is that too often, once a course is produced, insufficient resource is available to support its continued development from one presentation (or semester) to another. At the best this can lead to stale courses and jaded academics; at worst the course deteriorates from one presentation to the next with worsening student retention and performance.

This paper outlines the challenges posed by these issues as they have emerged within a suite of eLearning courses created according to the new business model, and describes one of the tools we have developed to support student driven course evolution.
