As an instructor, you already know that identifying and articulating your learning objectives is an essential first step in designing any course. When transferring your content to the Web, you will want to analyze your current objectives and make sure they are still applicable for the Web environment. You may find that while your objectives may not need to be altered, you will need to employ new instructional design strategies to achieve the desired outcome.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Are my current goals accomplishable in a Web environment?
- What would be the ideal outcomes for this course?
- Do I expect my students to accomplish anything different in a Web-based course?
- Will my objectives meet the needs and expectations of my audience?
