Knowing what courses to choose and why to choose them is a key to successful online content development. If you have an existing library of online content then you know how hard it can be to get faculty support, cooperation, and usable output during the development process. As always MindMax starts with your mission in mind, and then develops course selection criteria that will help you choose content that will best meet your short and longer term goals.
Whether you plan to use internal, external, or a hybrid of both kinds of resources to do the online development, MindMax can help you craft a solid development plan with realistic timelines and budgets. If needed, MindMax can also do the development for you leveraging your faculty and content source material to create pedagogically sound content. Additionally, MindMax can provide their proven methodology and development technology to help you recruit, train, and support Faculty throughout the entire process.
MindMax provides a full technology suite (an enrichment center) that can be used a la carte or as a complete delivery solution. This tailored Learning Content Management System (LCMS) serves as both a collaborative development community as well as the delivery platform for your Learning Management System (LMS). The enrichment center can be used to host and mange your courses or integrate with Blackboard (or another in-couse LMS).
MindMax believes so strongly in its mission of making education accessible that we are willing to invest launch capital to help institutions fund the development of new courses. Launching an e-learning program requires significant resources in order to gain exposure, attract students, train faculty, and create and manage the new learning environment. MindMax can fund most of this cost, enabling our partner institution to enter the market more quickly and more effectively. Please call for more details.
MindMax can provide hosting, manage the virtual communities, and provide general program management. Many people think once the course has been built, the work is over. MindMax has found that responsive, thoughtful support of students throughout the learning process increases their overall experience and their completion rates.
