Understanding Backwards Design

Today’s blog post is a bit of a continuation from the last one.  As I mentioned before, I’m experimenting with some new software and a new (for me) SCORM format. I started out using iSpring Page, which I really like a lot, especially the feature to embed in a website like I did in the post on Creating Accessible OER.  However, again, as I’ve mentioned before, I discovered it doesn’t allow for all accessbility features (like alt text) so I’ve now moved to experiementing with Articulate 360.  Specifically, I’ve created my first online module using Rise. Sadly, it doesn’t provide for the in-page embedding, so please check it out via the (really big) link below!

Rethinking Your Course: Applying Backwards Design

This online module on backwards design did double duty for me.  First, it gave me the chance to create content using Articulate 360, which I’d not used before.  Second, it was my capstone project for my summer professional development.  I successfully completed the Instructional Design Mastery Series from OLC!

As always, I'd love to hear from you.  Especially, I would love to hear if you have any additional tips for apps or software to consider for SCORM content creation, if you have ideas you’d like to share about backwards design, or if you have other comments about this blog post!
