    Abstract 

    Consistent and high-quality course delivery is essential to student engagement and success. Such high-quality delivery, however, is fully dependent on organizational course design practice. Online course design is rooted in the same solid principles of face-to-face teaching, but requires additional considerations. Traditional lecturing is replaced by a variety of multimedia communication tools. Teaching in a fully online environment can be difficult even for experienced online instructors when they have to prepare a new course. However, with a few helpful tactics, the process can be smooth and enjoyable. In this course participants will learn some effective techniques and some types of design that any instructor can use to successfully design an online course.
