Blendkit2016: Sexual Harassment Compliance Training Portfolio
In 2016 I participated in Blendkit, a MOOC provided by the University of Central Florida, using the Canvas LMS. During the course I designed the Sexual Harassment Training Compliance seminar and included an online portion. Before I could create the training course, I had to meet with the office of Gender Equality (OGE). Here is the agenda I used when meeting with the SME at the OGE for the first time (English & Korean)
I created a small sample of what I could do using a video recording (originally created using Adobe Captivate).
Content and Delivery
After getting approval from the OGE, I had to determine how to break up the content into two spheres. To do this I had to determine which content would be presented online and what learners would accomplish from the seminar. From there, I created two visual maps to help determine these two spheres of this blended course using templates from UCF.
Next I created a basic a syllabus and description of expectations to clearly help them understand how they could successfully complete the training program. Also included was the schedule of learning assignments that would occur in both of the Face-toFace and Online spheres. This would be provided to students online.
