Planning online courses – learn about the online course planning sprint workshop!

The online course design workshop is conducted fully online over 2 hours. I can facilitate the collaborative work of teams up to 6 people. It is also possible to have bigger groups.

This virtual course planning sprint gives the team an opportunity to brainstorm and generate ideas. The examples of products developed during my sprints include programme modules, micro-credentials, digital badges or MOOCs.

About Course Design Sprint and the facilitator

This particular workshop – or a course planning sprint that I am introducing here is aimed at the teams developing online courses within higher education institutions, but it can successfully be used in other sectors as well.  The examples of products developed during my sprints include programme modules, micro-credentialsdigital badges or MOOCs.

What to expect? Course Design Sprint steps and outcomes. 

Participants come to the workshop ready to work – they have all the necessary info obtained during the short online onboarding. During the workshop, I facilitate the discussion, brainstorming, storyboarding and curriculum planning. It is then up to the team to finish that work – I review it and give instructional feedback and recommendations.

More about online onboarding to the curriculum planning sprint

Before the course planning sprint, the course development team needs to complete online onboarding. It is a series of really short videos and resources. They are also asked to complete a brief survey – answers from this contribute to the initial discussion during the planning sprint.
