The Herkimer College/SUNY Internet Academy staff have developed and initiated a course development - course refresh process to provide its online students the highest quality, most accessible and most personally relevant learning experience possible. Courses refreshed under this program provide online students with state of the art learning strategies which encourage deep learning, course completion, and success. Three highlights of the process are its emphasis on 1) selecting and/or creating Open Educational Resources to replace expensive proprietary course content, 2) incorporating personally relevant applied learning experiences into the courses, and 3) designing heutagogical components into each course to maximize student engagement and deep learning. While the initiative was implemented to elevate the quality of online courses, the impact on campus courses has also been dramatic.
