Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many educational institutions to quickly switch to a predominantly real-time, virtual mode of teaching and learning; Educators often had to use quick technological fixes to design and deliver instructional material. In academic institutions with outcome-based education and assessment, implementing this hasty response further complicated matters for Educators, especially those who were committed to active learning practices. Post-pandemic, it is anticipated that virtual teaching and learning will be partially or fully adopted by many academic institutions whose programs' success, especially those that are outcome-based, will be largely dependent on the success of their real-time, virtual courses. This work proposes an Effective Model system whose interacting constituents are Information and Communication Technology Support, Teaching and Learning Support, and a Course Management System. This work also provides Educators with a conceptual framework for the Course Management System that integrates outcome-based design, delivery, and assessment of real-time virtual courses with active learning practices.
