Rapid development of online learning experiences

Creation of dynamic self-guided courses on Artificial Intelligence and Future Ready Librarians. 

Challenge

ISTE (the International Society for Technology in Education) was looking to launch an online university called ISTE-U. The client's goal with ISTE-U was to create a collection of high-quality deep-learning experiences to help educators enhance their expertise and advance their careers. However, they had a very tight timeline in which to create the rich courses in order to debut the initiative at their annual conference in the summer of 2018. They needed a team with instructional design expertise and production capacity to rapidly develop and produce two online courses. One of these courses was an in-depth look at Artificial Intelligence and its potential in the education space, and the other was about helping education leaders grasp the vital role librarians play in furthering Future Ready goals.

Solution

Clarity collaborated with subject matter experts well-versed in the content to rapidly develop the instructional design, organize and condense the content, and make the self-guided learning experience interactive and visually appealing to educators. ISTE also had many additions, changes and revisions to the courses, so we worked closely with them to make these enhancements: often rethinking and rewriting extensive parts of the curriculum on the fly. The courses were designed and built with Brightspace and H5P using proven project-based learning approaches so that participants could immerse themselves in the learning experience first-hand.
