Alignment with eLCC mission
In the spirit of collaboration, and innovation the CCCOnline Instructional Design (ID) Team implemented Subject Matter Expert (SME) training courses. First, a self-paced SME Orientation was built. Then, a second version was created, a one-week facilitated workshop. Now SME’s have a better foundation for success in course creation and implementation.
