In spite of the proliferation of online learning, creating online courses can still evoke a good deal of frustration, negativity, and wariness in those who need to create them. The second edition ofEssentials of Online Course Design takes a fresh, thoughtfully designed, step-by-step approach to online course development. At its core is a set of standards that are based on best practices in the field of online learning and teaching. Pedagogical, organizational and visual design principles are presented and modeled throughout the book and users will quickly learn from the guide's hands-on approach. The course design process begins with the elements of a classroom syllabus which, after a series of guided steps, easily evolve into an online course outline.
The guide's key features include:
Essentials of Online Course Design serves as a best-practice model for designing online courses. After reading this book, readers will find that preparing for online teaching is a satisfying and engaging experience. The core issue is simply good design: pedagogical, organizational, and visual.

This unusual collection of stencil designs showcases the sinuous elegance of Art Nouveau, with 44 plates dating from the 1920s. Inspired by interior and exterior architectural ornaments of buildings in France and Britain, the designs are meticulously reproduced from a rare vintage publication.Attractive patterns range from decorations for churches, drawing rooms, nurseries, and everything in between, including halls, galleries, and corners. The elaborate borders, friezes, and festoons include exquisite images of children, animals, birds, rosettes, and heraldic designs. These finely detailed, royalty-free patterns are an invaluable resource, perfect for adding a distinctive note to fabrics, stained glass, wallpaper, and a host of other art and craft projects. Browsers and devotees of the Art Nouveau style will also appreciate this treasury of striking stencil designs.
The Interior Dimension A Theoretical Approach to Enclosed Space Joy Monice Malnar and Frank Vodvarka " A plan proceeds from within to without... The exterior is the result of the interior." -- Le Corbusier This comment clearly indicates the primacy of the interior as a generator of form-- but design theory has historically emphasized buildings' exterior, not its interior. And this approach, essentially sculptural, has often had less than a beneficial effect on the building' s occupants. That situation is, however, changing, and the interior is increasingly being viewed as the designer' s primary concern. The Interior Dimension provides a much-needed theoretical overview of interior space-- its history and character-- in an organized and comprehensive manner. Exploring the history of spatial design from the first century B.C. to the present, this innovative book reviews the part of architectural theory that relates to the interior, as well as such related disciplines as fine art, psychology, philosophy, literature, and the environmental sciences. The approach is eclectic, and seeks to identify those design concerns necessary to proceed " ... from within to without." The book' s three-part organization clearly distinguishes fundamental design elements, their derivation, and applications within a cultural context. Each section addresses increasingly complex issues in design, thus providing a base of understanding for the succeeding chapter. First, The Interior Dimension examines the importance of theory, as well as attributes of fundamental design elements and their perception. The authors stress the abstract nature and generativepotential of even the simplest gesture, examining human spatial requirements both in terms of metaphysical aspects of visual elements and critical studies in perception. Second, it probes some of the positions that noted
Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems treats activities which take place at the conceptual and specification level of the design of complex multichip systems. These activities include the formalization of design knowledge (information modeling), tradeoff analysis, partitioning, and decision process capture. All of these functions occur prior to the traditional CAD activities of synthesis and physical design. Inherent in the design of electronic modules are tradeoffs which must be understood before feasible technology, material, process, and partitioning choices can be selected. The lack of a complete set of technology information is an especially serious problem in the packaging and interconnect field since the number of technologies, process, and materials is substantial and selecting optimums is arduous and non-trivial if one truly wants a balance in cost and performance. Numerous tradeoff and design decisions have to be made intelligently and quickly at the beginning of the design cycle before physical design work begins. These critical decisions, made within the first 10% of the total design cycle, ultimately define up to 80% of the final product cost. Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems lays the groundwork for concurrent estimation level analysis including size, routing, electrical performance, thermal performance, cost, reliability, manufacturability, and testing. It will be useful both as a reference for system designers and as a text for those wishing to gain a perspective on the nature of packaging and interconnect design, concurrent engineering, computer-aided design, and system synthesis.
