The OLC Digital Courseware Instructional Practice Scorecard provides quality indicators on how to build an effective classroom experience for students, for those faculty making use of digital courseware to enhance the learning process.
With a focus on teaching using digital courseware, relevant indicators were culled from the QCTIP to form the Digital Courseware Instructional Practice (DCIP) scorecard.
In building an effective classroom experience for students, many faculty make use of digital courseware to enhance the learning process. The DCIP scorecard provides a framework that can be used to effectively teach with digital courseware and covers the Learning Foundations, Faculty Engagement and Student Engagement Categories.
Also, found on the website for Courseware in Context (CWiC), the tool can be used in collaboration with the CWiC Product Primer or the longer CWiC Designer tool.
A free version of the Digital Courseware Instructional Practice Scorecard is also available to download.
“We have found the OLC Quality Scorecard to be a very effective tool for the administration of online education programs. The Scorecard provides a helpful framework for strategic planning and is used to evaluate programs, identify areas for change, and reassess annually.
