Wednesday, October 17 4:15 PM-5:15 PM Location: Jubilee Ballroom 1
Abstract: This paper is to demonstrate how an international (China-US) online course was designed and delivered. The author of this paper concludes that media logic is a vitally significant element in the international online course and should be an integral part of the design to make the delivery of such online course feasible and successful. Due to the factors of the geographical location and availability as well as accessibility of technological resources, a well-designed instruction is essential to make the course content accessible and the instruction deliverable. Of equal importance in building online courses, cultural influence, which is reflected in the language usage, should also be given attention. The reflections on the design and delivery of this course will provide insights for other similar international courses worldwide.
