Creating Quality Online Courses: Instructional Material

There are many types of instructional material available for you to use in your online course, everything from self-developed, to publisher ready content. The following is a partial list of resources available to you:

  • Self-Created materials
  • Publisher Ready Content
  • YouTube Videos
  • Website Links
  • Textbook Materials
  • Open Source Content

It is your responsibility to choose the materials presented to your students. The instructional materials contribute to the achievement of the course learning objectives. As we learned in in the Course Overview section of this series, it is also important that you keep everyone informed of how the materials are to be used and when.

Be an example to your students and make sure all instructional materials used in the course are appropriately cited and current. Use a variety of instructional materials to reach a mixture of learning styles, and because you are using variety of materials make sure you clearly distinguish between required and optional materials.
