Courses Without Facilitators or Instructors

Designing a course in a learning management system without a teacher poses a certain challenge. It requires great attention to not only the content, but how people can easily follow content. Having taken a number of courses online without an instructor available as a guide, there are numerous solutions available. But what happens when resources are limited you need to make hundreds of pages of content easy to follow?

For this course I decided on a numbered grid and inserting my own navigation system within the course.

These screens illustrate how a learner can follow steps within a flexible system where a student may explore, but not lose track of where they are in the interface.
