    Collaborative Development User Feedback
  • 11. Social Authoring Successes
  • 12.
    • There was confusion and a basic misunderstanding over the right to use published material when creating an online course
    • There was a reluctance for instructors/subject matter experts to work for free
    • We needed to add a layer to the process to ensure quality, add visuals and captions for those visuals
    Initial Effort What we Learned Social Authoring Lessons Learned
  • 13.
    • While we learned some lessons along the way, our basic process for social authoring still seems sound.
      • With member support, we intend to continue with the social authoring process and fine-tune the process as we learn from our experiences.
      • We think working together is more effective than working independently.
