Short Description: 

This syllabus is a sample for an online literature course. I created this sample around Victorian studies, but any literature subject is applicable. I've provided examples of online projects. The goal of a syllabus like this one is to introduce students to literature, making online objects, and utilizing open resources effectively.

Below is a link to a sample learning object:

Learning Outcomes: 

Exposure: Students will learn about the Victorian era through selected literature. They will do so in a completely online format.

Create: Students will create digital objects that reflect their analysis of a Victorian text. 

Research: Students will learn to meaningfully engage with open access content, and learn about copyright.

Reflect: Students will complete reflective essays that inform the viewer of the decisions in their digital object.

Peer Review: Students will virtually workshop their digital objects together throughout the semester. They will share their work on the course discussion board to give and provide constructive feedback on their ideas, objects, etc. They will also use select class meetings for workshops.
