Our OID standards encompass four categories. Click on any of the categories on the menu to
the right to get further information on each category's set of standards.
This category is primarily involved with the functionality and appropriateness of the technology.
The Technology category does not encompass such things as navigation, but rather issues of whether
or not the technology works, if it¹s appropriate to the audience, etc.
This category also deals with technology, but goes beyond mere "does it work" issues and deals primarily with function as it pertains to promoting an optimal learning environment
This category is designed to ensure that courses which must or should be
accessible meet the minimum requirements for accessibility. These standards are
based on WAI's Priority 1 guidelines for basic Internet content.
Instructional Design Standards
This category represents what is most often missed in on-line instruction. That is, is the material itself pedagogically sound? Our standards ensure that all necessary components of successful instruction are present; Explanation, Demonstration, Practice, Feedback and Assessment.
Further, they ensure that content, practice and assessment are consistent with the type of skills and knowledge being taught, the stated or implied objectives of the instruction, as well as being consistent with each other.
