Customized Course Review Rubrics: How to Take the Quality of Your Online Courses to the Next Level
Available from Magna Publications, Inc.
One of the primary criticisms of online courses in the past has been that they lack the quality of face-to-face learning. Whether or not that perception is accurate, using online course review rubrics has certainly made a difference. While generic, off-the-shelf rubrics, like what you get from subscription services, are fine for some, the one-size-fits-all model doesn’t work for everyone. If you want the benefits of a customized rubric, consider creating one of your own. And your first step in that process should be to order the latest online seminar from Magna Publications, Customized Course Review Rubrics: How to Take the Quality of Your Online Courses to the Next Level.
Find out if creating your own course evaluation rubric is right for your institution.
