I found the OSCQR course design review tool a fantastic method with which to review our online Springboard business analytics course. The six sections used to benchmark the course against were intuitive and flowed logically. Each section contained hyperlink URLs which provided the assessor with links to further information on what each category was looking for and ideas on how it could be improved. I also found the time needed for revision recommendations quite useful. The ability to draw up an action plan to tackle any issues requiring remedying was also very beneficial. I would highly recommend this tool to lecturers for traditional/blended and online module/course development and for ensuring quality assurance.
