DartmouthX Courses, Teams and Activities
DartmouthX Course Kickstart Process
Soon after the initial course team kickoff meeting, a "design jam" will be scheduled with the course team. This is an all-day, onsite, working session, facilitated by Mark Rudnick, our edX program manager.
The purpose of the "design jam" is to have a detailed discussion with the course team about the design, content and delivery of the course. The outcome of the session will be a list of the work that needs to be completed in order to deliver the course, and a rough schedule for doing so.
Subsequently, Mark and his edX colleagues will be available to participate remotely in team meetings, as needed, to provide guidance and information as the course team determines how best to meet the course objectives.
