Announcing Webinar: Designing Effective Resources for Online Learning Description: In 2005, the National Repository of Online Courses (NROC) created a set of design principles to guide the development of online learning content (learning objects) and courses that may be adapted for different teaching and learning needs. These principles remain very relevant today in the rapidly shifting technology and learning landscape. This webinar will explore NROC's design principles and their application for developing and facilitating rich 21st century learning experiences.
