Hi @Emma_Irwin - I'll try to see if I can make the call, but like you say, the timezone makes it a little challenging (combined with limited internet at home atm). I should give you an update on Course in a Box though.
For this year, we've decided to focus on facilitating offline groups working through online courses. We want to focus most of our efforts on helping the offline groups work together.
Course in a Box has two parts to it
- It's a course that leads you through the process of building a course
- It's a tool that you can use to build online courses
We decided to not facilitate the course part (1), people can still do the course on their own pace. We're using the tool ourselves, but we'll be focusing on building tools geared towards the offline groups.
I believe it's a useful tool and strikes good balance between helping people get started and giving them full ownership and control.
Does hearing this change your thoughts on using Course in a Box?
