The IEEE Standards Education Committee wanted to adapt outdated content from a MOOC I was apart of developing previously and wanted to deliver the repurposed content as a series of self-paced eLearning module.

They had great success previously with the content as a MOOC and wanted something formal yet engaging for an audience consisting primarily of university students and faculty.

I developed a three module course underpinned with theory and formative assessments to ensure learners understood and could apply the content.

I used the assets from the original MOOC to develop the bulk of the course elements, saving considerable development time and delivering the project under budget.

The final course was engaging, aesthetically pleasing and chunked the content into bite-sized pieces.

“Thinking, guessing, and failing all increase how likely we are to remember the learning point that follows. It shows us what we already do – or don’t! – know, which can increase motivation to learn.

Thinking through situations in a safe, digital environment ahead of time also prepares us for the real deal.”
