We just added a new course offering for Spring 2013 - Project Management for Instructional Designers - IT743XD. The 3 credit hour graduate course will be offered via an 8-week (March 11 to May 10) massive open online course (MOOC) using the hot new learning management system - Canvas. The instructor for the course will be Dr. Rob Gibson, ESU's Associate CIO for Academic Technology and User Services.  I hope you can join us for this exciting course offering!

Course Description -
“Project Management for Instructional Designers,” is designed for students with little or no background in formal project management.  It provides an introductory examination of the primary components involved with Project Management: Developing a Project Charter; Developing the Project Scope; Developing the Work Breakdown Structure;  Developing Critical Path and Gantt Charts; Determining Project Risks; Determining Project Success Criteria; Developing the Project Organization Chart; and Communicating the Project to the Organization.  Our goal is to understand what is involved in complex instructional design projects involving multiple personnel, such as graphic designers, video production specialists, subject matter experts, pedagogy specialists, web developers, accessibility specialists, programmers, multimedia developers, and other key personnel.

The PMP Certification establishes a common language among project managers and helps each other work within a common framework. Once you have the PMP, you need to consider how you're applying the processes, tools, and techniques to projects. I took a training course for my preparation in and got ready for the exam on day 5!
