dc.descriptionThe paper was presented in collaboration with my colleague Stella Lee as part of the parallel session on Content Implementation and Maintenance. Following the round of presentations, members from the audience asked questions concerning: timelines for developing and/or adapting online courses at AU; there were questions about costs for enrolling in AU courses for international students and also about the quality assurance issues related to online tests in a distance education environment. The feedback received both during the formal and informal conversations with a wide range of international participants have reinforced my reflections on the pedagogical as well as the technological implications for my instructional design practice as AU is moving toward a large implementation of Moodle within both the Canadian and increasingly international contexts. Meeting the Southeast Asian researchers and practitioners involved in e-learning and distance education who were eager to learn more about AU course development operations indicated that there were opportunities for future potential collaboration related to instructional design projects.en
dc.description.abstractFollowing the adoption of new Strategic Plans, Athabasca University has been in the process of transforming its print-based courses to online content delivery for the past five years. This paper aims to report on the recent developments and issues on this transition, specifically, the steps and strategies the Educational Media Development team took to assess existing content and how to repurpose them for e-learning. Strategies such as how to adapt print production to online learning; the integration of various components of course websites; and the move towards integrating content into learning management system such as Moodle. This content development and migration process is particularly complex in the context that is characterized by self-paced, individualized study, continuous enrolment and an asynchronous mode of distance education delivery at the undergraduate level.en
