This course was lots of work…very valuable work. I earned my master’s in instructional design in the infancy of online education. Since I earned my degree, the entire EdTech program at San Diego State has gone online. (Also, the program was rebranded as Learning Design and Technology to more accurately portray its focus.)
I appreciated the tasks of creating instructional videos, though the time constraints seemed overly restrictive at times. It gave me an appreciation for those that create high volumes of online instruction. I plan to incorporate more instructional videos in my teaching. While they take some time to produce, they eliminate questions and allow the students to be more productive.
