Who Cares About Instructional Design?

Posted by Edvance360 on Nov 2, 2018 8:31:30 AM

Instructional Design. The words sound so dry and boring. Maybe even intimidating. But, the truth is, they don’t have to be. If you are involved in creating courses, you are already involved in instructional design.

At its core, that is what Instructional design does - it optimizes the process of instructing and learning to make your online learning program successful.

Rubrics: When Just a Grade Is Not Enough

Posted by Edvance360 on May 4, 2018 8:17:45 PM

Sometimes a grade or pass/fail is simply not enough. If you need to provide constructive feedback to learners on completed assignments (papers, presentations, videos, pitches, responses to role-playing, etc.), a rubric is the perfect grading tool. A rubric standardizes scoring or rating based on your (customized) rubric criterion. To set it up, first define the criteria on which the assignment will be graded - usually around your objectives, set the rating scale, and create feedback.

While initially designed for the academic rigors of higher education, the Edvance360 Rubrics tool can be used by corporations, K-12 schools or basically any time a course facilitator wants to provide constructive criticism.

Edvance360’s #1 Feature: Our People

Posted by Edvance360 on Jan 9, 2018 6:33:24 PM

You wouldn’t make it without them, and that’s a fact.
