Assignment 4: Designing and Developing an e-Learning Course
This paper can be written like a course guide or course syllabus:
I’m attaching a template of how the course guide should be written.
I’m attaching assignment 3: That’s where you will get you information for the Course Guide.
Quick note about Assignment four:
1. For assignment four, you can use much of the information you provided in assignment three of this course. (I don’t mind if you use information you use from EDU541 and EDU550 if you have taken those courses for this assignment either.)
2. The assignment has two parts; the first part is the paper, and I don’t mind if you create the paper in the form of a course syllabus or course guide! The second part is the creation of your course in course-site! I will be grading both.
