There are many myths as to what makes a “good” online presentation. Uncover the truth in this webinar led by Dr. Steven Crawford, District Director, Maricopa Community Colleges. You’ll begin by exploring the categories and types of instructional multimedia. Then, examine the research that informs the practice of developing multimedia for online presentations, including how evaluating and creating media for online courses relates to QM Specific Review Standards 1.8, 4.5, 6.3, 8.4, and 8.5. Finally, share your thoughts on how faculty and instructional designers can apply these emerging best practices when developing online presentations. This webinar is free and open to QM Members as well as non-members.
