Next-Generation Technology Impacts on Quality in Online Learning
The Strategic Use of Analytics to Create a 360° Overall View of Course Quality
Kody Stimpson, Manager of Quality Assurance and Enhancement, Arizona State University - ASU Online
Kody Stimpson is the Manager of Quality Assurance and Enhancement for ASU Online at Arizona State University. Previously he worked for the Office of Online Education at University of Nevada Las Vegas. He earned an MS in Instructional Technology and a BA in Spanish Teaching from Utah State University.
Two major factors that impact course quality are course design and instructor facilitation. This session will share three initiatives used to increase course quality at ASU Online. The discussion will include (1) ASU Online faculty expectations, which include expectations related to course design, development and practices for teaching online; (2) ASU's 360° course health tool that leverages data including pass rates, withdrawals, course evals, and other data to identify courses in poor health or those that may benefit from an intervention; and (3) ASU's course revision and instructor training that relies on the 360 analytics.
