Developing a Quality Checklist for Designing Blended Learning Course Content

Sahreen Chauhan, Azra Naseem, and Eman Rashwan

Abstract—This paper describes the process of developing a quality assurance checklist for course designers and faculty members who are engaged in designing blended learning courses at a multi-campus private university. The purpose is to establish unified quality criteria for ensuring quality of the design of blended learning course content. Six categories were identified in the checklist to meet the purpose: 1) contact information, copyrights, 2) privacy and security of information, 3) nature of interactive online content, 4) usability, 5) multimedia, and 6) interface design and technical specifications. Four stages of the checklist development were followed during the process: initial discussion for item adaption, validity and reliability assessment, tool/checklist refinement and finalization. These stages were found to be useful in creating the quality checklist for designing the course content taught through blended learning approaches.

Index Terms—Blended learning, course design, checklist development, quality assurance.
