2 Continuous Course Improvement

In any instructional experience, it’s important to evaluate and adjust course elements based on what is working effectively for student learning. This process is referred to as continuous improvement [1].

Courses should be periodically reviewed based on the agreed-upon guidelines to ensure high-quality and accessible online courses. Guidelines developed or chosen by an academic unit should be reviewed periodically by members of its community (e.g., faculty, administrators, instructional designers) to help ensure the best possible online program and course quality.

There are a number of methods you can use to review your online course:
