Developing an online course requires the hard work, dedication, and coordination of many people as they juggle the numerous moving pieces necessary to create an engaging educational experience. The process of creating fully online plant science and plant identification classes with the collaborative efforts of Longwood Gardens and North Carolina State University has been a challenging, rewarding and extremely beneficial undertaking. In this webinar, we will be taking an in-depth look at the process of identifying, developing, and blending institutional resources, finances, people, and systems. Further, we will outline the challenges in bringing this collaboration to fruition. Data presented will include enrollment from 2015 to present, course completion totals, participation metrics, certificate achievements, and course evaluation responses measuring course difficulty, knowledge gained, and overall satisfaction. We will also present student feedback and suggestions along with future directions as we expand to include new classes.
