Reviews for Conquering the Content : A Step-by-Step Guide to Online C...
Robin Smith’s “Conquering the Content: a step-by-step guide to online course design” is a short work consisting of common sense ideas about moving a course from the classroom to online. I highly recommend this book to any educator about to make that move. I called Smith’s ideas common sense but I don’t want to belittle them. They are the type of “common sense” that is hard won, normally gained after time and energy consuming error. Smith does not waste time discussing software or hosting services, she focuses of the organization and discipline needed to get a complete course online, on time. At less than 150 pages this book may be your project’s biggest timesaver.read more
