The Independent Remote Course Design Essentials (iReCoDE) is a self-paced, independent experience that will guide instructors through the steps of preparing their remote course. The course is available by clicking on “Self-Registration” on the top navigation bar of your LEARN homepage and selecting “Independent Remote Course Design Essentials” from the list of available courses. The goal of this site is to provide you with the resources you need to become remote teaching ready at your own pace and on your own time. Once enrolled you will not lose access to the site so you can continue to return to it as needed.
Each step of the iReCoDE experience includes:
- content to watch (10-15min recording)
- tasks to complete
- checking questions to reflect on
You also have the option to share your work with your CTE Liaison or other remote teaching contact at each step along the way for additional input.
As a final step in preparing to teach online, we encourage you to submit an iReCoDE Course Portfolio that showcases the design decisions you have made in preparing your remote course. This capstone experience will result in the completion of ReCoDE+ which will grant course credit to all who complete this deliverable.
You can self-enroll in this LEARN course. The course is available by clicking on “Self-Registration” on the top navigation bar of your LEARN homepage and selecting “Independent Remote Course Design Essentials” from the list of available courses
