Basic Course Pattern

Pencils and books are not enough in today's education - we are faced with the challenge of finding creative ways to keep students engaged through inventive uses of technology and make learning not feel like learning. By creating a multi-media course, you will be creating interactive learning activities and resources (ex. video, eBooks, etc) that are seen as an ongoing dynamic process for students to complete in their course.

The Basic Course Pattern is an abstract solution to recurring design problems that you may experience when first starting to create your online course. The term was originally used in architecture, but it has been applied more recently to pedagogical patterns...documenting good practices in teaching. In architecture, the placement of doors, gates, windows, and other elements are design patterns that recur in many buildings. The idea of a lobby in a large office building is a design pattern. Over time, these patterns can lead to the discovery of an entirely new way of delivering your education online.

Multi-media is media and content that uses a combination of different content forms, and this is the start of the 'pattern' in using a variety of media to accomplish the course's learning objectives. After analyzing the concept of a 'Basic Course Pattern,' you will then be able to continue your education to continually innovate your education.

Our educational philosophy places a major focus on the content in your course, this creates that 'educational experience' that will capture your students' attention and make learning not feel like learning...
