*TeleEducation NB* Course Developers Guidelines PDF version *PURPOSE & POLICIES* * policies *ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE OF CONTENT* * course organization *DESIGN AND TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS* * file sizes * the look * documentation * naming conventions * buttons * specifications *CREDITS* *EVALUATION* Purpose This guide has been created to provide World Wide Web course developers with a set of common standards and guidelines for publishing courses on line. Some of the standards make eminent sense to everyone, others have been agreed to just to ensure that we all develop to a common standard. This makes courses more interchangeable and usable among those who agree to develop to the accepted standards. *Purpose of the Web Pages* The Web page is the common element of all courses developed. It will link all the elements of the course and direct the learner to specific media (Web-based, computer-based, paper-based, audio and/or video materials) or activities. The design model is learning-centred. All courses are asynchronous with the Web environment facilitating the interaction between: * the learner and the course material * the learner and the instructor/facilitator * the learner and peers The learners will interact through: * Online *discussion *forums * Direct *e-mail* access to the facilitator * Content *index* * *Help* section * Glossary If desired, interaction can also be promoted through live classes or teleconferences, but the courses should stand alone online in an asynchronous environment and not be dependent on live interactions with the teacher or other students.
