Instructional issues to consider
While constructing my design concept I realized that from an instructional stand point this class could be time consuming if it is truly completed as a self paced course. The idea was that as students completed various sections of the course they would e-mail the instructor their completed task/assignment/etc. The problem with this is that some of the lessons can not be started until they have received feedback from the instructor. Therefore the instructor would have to consistently be checking his or her e-mail and responding almost immediately to the students. After thinking this through I have decided that the course can remain a self study course, however there will be time frames established in which the students are expected to complete their tasks. This way the instructor and the students know when to expect communication from one another.
