Week 5: Preparing for Launch

Learning Design & Next Steps


Our goal this week is to discuss how to launch our own Self-Paced Classrooms, and how to organize our Learning Management System and classroom for success.





Preparing for Launch


Step 1: Identify

Identify and classify (must/should/aspire) relevant learning objectives.

Step 2: Create

Create practice, mastery checks, and end-of-unit assessments.

Step 3: Record

Plan and record videos.

Step 4: Organize

Organize all materials on your LMS.

This feels daunting, but we can break it down into small chunks.

Plan lesson-by-lesson, and eventually a full unit will emerge.

Also, don't forget to plan those whole class activities like labs, discussions, simulations, and review games.
