Six Red Marbles Launches Faculty Success to Help Faculty Transition Their Courses Online
Jun 2, 2020
BOSTON, Massachusetts—Six Red Marbles (SRM) has launched Faculty Success: Tools and Resources for Transitioning Your Courses Online, a series of well-organized, practical, and easy-to-digest self-paced professional development modules that will give higher education faculty the tools and resources they need to transition to teaching online.
“Higher education is facing some of its most difficult challenges with the recent shift to remote teaching and learning. This work will require ongoing strategic and tactical approaches to ensure student success. Six Red Marbles has long worked with colleges and universities to design their courses for all types of learning experiences. Our free Faculty Success resource is an exciting opportunity to make our experience and expertise available to a greater number of people and ultimately create better learning experiences for students and faculty,” said David Goodman, President and CEO of Six Red Marbles.
Faculty Success consists of seven modules that users can choose from, ranging from how to have discussions online to a step-by-step guide to designing, developing, and uploading a course.
“There is a lot of information out there, and it can be overwhelming and too academic,” said Kelvin Bentley, VP of Learning Strategy at Six Red Marbles. “The SRM team worked hard to make a different resource, one in which the user can easily find the information they need, along with downloadable assets that help faculty get started right away.”
Six Red Marbles is a leading, U.S.-based content development, learning experience design, and education technology company providing content solutions to education providers across the globe. SRM’s learning experience design team members are experts at transforming complex educational content into meaningful learning experiences, from elementary school interactives to professional development courses.
