I was introduced to Instructional Design while attending the University of Florida during my undergraduate studies. I then went on to complete my Master's of Science in Instructional Systems from The Florida State University. In my personal life, I enjoy staying active through exercise at the gym and Ballet dance.

Description
Our job is to meet or exceed consumer demand. To provide learners a well-designed product that supplies "more bang for their buck." We must aim our focus toward the learner. Learners today expect more than they did a few years ago. There weren't as many options in the past. The demands of learners and course design are continually changing. If we do not meet learners' needs, they will be lost -- to competition or to complacency. This session examines innovative ways to improve these areas of demand: Course Navigation, Interaction, Content, Calendar, Support.
Learning Objectives
Differentiate between quality course content and quantity course content.
Discuss the demands of today's learners in an online course.
Examine how innovative course content meets consumer demand in an online course; including navigation, interaction, support resources, and assessments.
