ob toolkit

With over 800 students in multiple courses, Michael O'Leary in the Organization Studies Department wanted to create a web-based teaching toolkit containing learning objects (e.g., syllabi, articles, assignments, in and out of class exercises, video clips, etc) for faculty and teaching fellows teaching multiple Organizational Behavior courses. To create the content for the site, a number of learning objects professors typically use in their Organizational Behavior courses were collected, digitized, and uploaded into the site. Users of the site can comment on how they used individual resources as well as add additional resources. As a way to continue to add new content, the site has been integrated with a teaching practicum course.

Instructional Design and eTeaching Services staff members used an open-source software package called Drupal to create the teaching toolkit. Customized modules were created to address some of the desired functionalities.
