What is an NROC course?
NROC identifies and aggregates the best online courses
and content available. Working with
academic contributors, instructional designers, media
producers, and programmers, NROC's editorial staff has
created the NROC course development guidelines used to
evaluate each course in the library. NROC partners with
course developers and contributes additional development
resources to ensure that the content is editorially rigorous, curricularly complete, and the technology is compatible with popular content management systems (e.g., BlackBoard).
The NROC courses utilize various combinations of video,
animation, still graphics, simulations, text and audio
to provide a resource beyond the development capacity of
most educational institutions and organizations. The courses
also focus on student activities, interaction and collaboration
that take advantage of online communication tools.
