Architecting learning experiences for today’s students requires a level of sophisticated organization. You have to accommodate:
- Anytime, anywhere learning;
- Skills gaps and industry standards;
- Regional and national accreditation;
- Assessment alignment;
- Curriculum mapping; and on and on.
Setting out to build programs that meet all of these needs is no small feat. Just as you would never show up on a construction site without approved blueprints, teams increasingly require vetted, quality learning blueprints prior to building courses in the learning management system (LMS).
When this essential planning phase is skipped or poorly executed, we end up wasting a phenomenal amount of resources. Imagine walking through a newly-constructed home to find an extra kitchen behind the garage. Or to realize that you needed four bedrooms instead of three. These are expensive, frustrating corrections. It’s also not far off from the frustrations students express when their program or pathway is not fully vetted, or worse, what we uncover too late when trying to solve for plunging assessment scores and high attrition rates.
Founded by three practitioners with first-hand knowledge of the issues and intricacies of course and program design from a collective 70+ years in education and technology, Coursetune was specifically designed to help educators work better together in an ever-changing, standards-driven, and increasingly competency-based landscape.
Deep, systemic challenges within education are worth solving, even if they are not easy to understand or explain.
Coursetune provides the visual mapping of the underpinnings and strategy behind course design. To build in Coursetune is to go a layer deeper than an LMS. It streamlines the complex alignment process necessary before creating syllabi, lessons, activities, assessments, or multi-media content, for face-to-face, online or blended learning.
As the skeletal structure for program and course design, Coursetune powerfully and easily communicates strategic instructional design specifically for stakeholder buy-in, accreditation review, or expansion requests, and acts as a feedback loop for fine-tuning courses over time—all toward improving student learning.
