Goold and Auga (2006) describe an experiment in prototyping of a transformation of a face-to-face course into an online offering.

This looks like an interesting template to use in trying out the Web 2.0 Course Site idea. The process would be something like

  • Identify an existing course website or two
  • Figure out how to convert them to a Web 2.0 course site
    Which in itself encapsulates a range of interesting trade-offs. Do a purely technical translation? Aim for something more transformative?
  • Grab a collection of students and staff to trial it out
  • Use the feedback to return to step 2.
