In this program students will learn the tools and how they can integrate the software and technologies to create graphic design and web design elements.
With the increase in the use of technologies and the
various tools available, educational institutions have been developing and
improving platforms for online teaching as well as students of all ages and
levels of education are learning using computers or mobile devices with online
courses instead face to face in a physical classroom. This is a solution for students
with many barriers such a geographical distance, personal commitments, type of
jobs and/or financial limitations. Distance learning is gaining ground in the
field of formal education.
classes can be a great solution for students since many do not have the time,
budget or facilities to move from one place to another.
virtual classes, it is very important to prepare programs with tools that can
adapt to the teaching objectives and when designing an interface with a virtual
world engine, we have to adapt the design and usability to the objectives of
The course designers always have to continue investigating emerging technologies to incorporate them into their classes, thus make the students feel a much deeper, stronger, and durable level of commitment toward their studies.
I developed and designed this website using the WordPress engine, and I adapted the design and the structure modifying part of the HTML, CSS and PHP code. I installed more plugins such as a Learning Management System plugin to add the necessary functionality to achieve the goal of this project.

Students will have to connect with the instructor in a live class. Is good to use two screens, one to work on and the other to follow the instructor.
Students will have access to videos of each class which will help them to do the work assignment.
Students will receive the class material before the class so they can follow the instructor along in the live class.
If students need more help, they can ask for 101 hours with the instructor for reinforcement.
For this model, formative assessment must be done during and between the phases. The purpose of this type of assessment is to improve instruction before implementing the final version. Each of the stages of the ADDIE process is evaluated, and the final one is a summative assessment made through specific tests to analyze the results of the training action. Thus, registering the data and making an interpretation of the results of the assessment will provide the necessary information to improve or modify the course.
