Abstract

The sequencing of online course activities in higher education is a necessity to guide students through the course materials, discussions, etc. in learning environments where students and instructors are separated by time or space. Too often, online course management systems serve as basic course document retrieval and communication tools. Students then are left to navigate a course website haphazardly to determine a path through the wide array resources. This strategy for designing an online course interface at best subverts any instructional design for a course. At worst, it promotes the design of online courses that lack thoughtful consideration of the importance of the sequencing of course activities. This paper describes efforts by the Idaho Virtual Campus to design courseware with a central organizing course feature that allows instructors to integrate all of the features of the IVC course system and sequence activities into meaningful modules for online delivery.
