Course production process for distance learning courses


A distance learning course is not simply the replication of face-to-face delivery.  In fact, it does not have to be exactly the same as the face-to-face delivery, but provide an equivalent (rather than identical) experience. This means that designing a distance learning course follows a slightly different process to face-to-face courses and modules.

Whilst there are criteria which define a given module, although the learning outcomes and the assessment should be the same, there is flexibility within those criteria to reflect the alternate contexts of face-to-face and distance learning. 

From the outset, you will be working with members of the Distance Learning Unit (DLU), who will provide support and guidance and both course team and individual module developer level.
