Given what you have learned in this course this quarter;
- What is the most important take away from this course
- The most important take away from this course, as mentioned by our professor, is that instructional designers wear many hats, but that one of the most important roles they play is that of a listener. This is because as instructional designers we have clients and faculty that we must work with, they are whom need us to create a course that will meet their ultimate objective. In addition to being a great listener, an instructional designer must have great communication skills. We must be able to explain to our clients what the process is like and explain why certain decisions will be best for their course. This course made me understand with greater detail exactly what an instructional designer does and the responsibilities they hold.
- What was your experience like in taking a fully online course
- My experience in taking a fully online course was positive, I can’t think of anything that I would change. I feel like the instructor created a course that has the right amount of work due each week, with engaging material that supported the weekly readings and topic being covered. Everything was well organized and instructions were clear every week, including weekly reminders. The instructor was also quick in answering my emails when needed, overall Professor Bedan Kamau provided a great online course.
