Redesigning Fully Online Criminology Course Using Adpative Learning Experiences

This website documents the redesign of SOC 368, Criminology, at CSU Dominguez Hills, a popular sociology course which has regular enrollment from students in multiple majors. Due to campus limitations in classroom availability, we must offer it online more often than not, and that situation has created a bottleneck situation for this course compared to other courses offered by the department. This ePortfolio details the specific issues faced by students in this course, and how technological and pedagogical redesign should alleviate or correct most of these issues, so the tools and insights used and discovered through this redesign can be shared to other faculty in the CSU system who may be facing similar problems in their courses.

Introduction to the Criminal Justice System Online Course Redesign for Student Success

I'm developing a fully online large introductory class using adaptive learning and virtual labs.

Kremling, Janine CSU San Bernardino
Taking Anthropology GE Course Fully Online Using Adaptive Learning Tools

The course has been taught as a traditional lecture course in a large lecture setting. For the redesign it will be transformed into a fully online course, injecting engagement, assessments, and assignments that fulfill higher learning course design models following Bloom's taxonomy. The goal is to provide online discussion periods (hence the "flipped" aspect) and update course texts and materials. I am also using a few new learning LMS embedded tools (like Socrative app, Zoom, google docs, online quizzes, news sites, and YouTube videos) to enhance resource diversity, connecting the course to current events and social issues.
