Course Design & Development

We believe a module is more than the content of a syllabus. It’s about the experience. It’s what students gain, achieve, develop and master that will help them realize their success. Well-designed educational experiences drive completion and help to launch students’ careers.

Is your module current, active and social? Dynamic and visual? Relevant and skill-based? Working adults approach furthering their education as the best means to an end, and our course design methodology takes this to heart.

Reverse Engineering the Course

Our instructional design team starts with the end in mind. We focus on identifiable student performance and competencies first and then determine the evidence of learning progress, such as acceptable forms of assessment. We partner with your academics and staff to develop an overarching skills map for your university and individual programmes and integrate it into student learning plans. We do this using Seelio Connect, our experiential learning technology. The result? Students can see and demonstrate how every module is connected to their goal of skills mastery.

Academic Support

The entire instructional design team -- including designers, developers and quality assurance specialists -- partners with your academics as subject matter experts and works with them to reenvision their module content for online learning using leading pedagogy and the latest in  distance learning technology.

Quality and Compliance

First and foremost, our instructional designers are stewards of your university’s reputation and take this responsibility seriously. Our QA specialists ensure the quality of module content upholds the standards of your university, and your academics have the final sign off on launch. Our instructional designers follow the Online Learning Consortium Quality Scorecard and the Quality Matters Program.

Data-Informed Improvement

What is measured can be improved, and our modules are designed for measurement throughout. We analyze high-level trends of completion alongside granular reporting of engagement and performance. Student support advisors collect student feedback on the module, the instructor and the programme as a whole, and share this information with our instructional design team to be integrated into future iterations of the module.

Adaptable Technology

Being a true partner means integrating with your existing technology suite, not locking you into proprietary technology systems. Our instructional design team and support staff are versed in several VLE, CMS, CRM and other technology solutions necessary to deliver a seamless online learning experience at scale.
