A question on a survey at my place of employment. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Do you know of any research or pilot projects on online course standardization OR other methods to improve student outcomes in web classes ( i.e. orientations, intro modules, mentors, placement tests, etc.)? We need to be aware of the full range of research on this topic--both studies that explore what DOES work and those that discuss what failed to work.
You may want to contact folks in Boise State's eCampus Center. BSU has bought into (literally) the Quality Matters framework, and this is used to assess a wide range of online courses.
