Editorial Reviews


"If you plan to start an online course or if you simply want to improve your online teaching skills, take the time to read Course Design Formula. How do students actually learn? What affordances and constraints are directly associated with online teaching? The author bases her book on simple psychology and pedagogy principles, cognitive science research, as well as her rich experience as an educator, both online and offline. Even at 400 pages, the book is an easy read, but the knowledge it provides is invaluable."
Gabriel Ciordas,
CEO/founder, Flipsnack

"In my many years designing online courses, I have never encountered anything as intuitive and easy to follow as the Course Design Formula. This will become my go-to formula to design courses from now on."
Mauricio Cadavid, Ed.D.

"If you are looking for an outstanding textbook for a class that teaches how to design and deliver online learning, this book is for you and your students. It presents a learning design process that is informed by a deep understanding of the research, presented in a clear and logical way. It can serve as a springboard to help readers understand highly practical and relevant research findings about learning, media, and process. From there, readers can easily launch either into a deeper investigation of salient lines of research or move right into the production of online learning resources--from individual learning objects to full-length courses."
Brian Newberry, Ph.D., instructional designer, Jackson College

"This is a book that can be used in the corporate space, higher education, or by individuals who desire to share their own expertise online for fun or for profit. Each chapter has clearly defined objectives, real-life examples that readers can relate to, and most importantly, a wealth of resources to help the new or seasoned designer assess, design, and review their course idea and learning outcomes. This is by far, one of the best books I have read on course development in years."
Mary Nunaley, Ms.ED., ATD Master Instructional Designer™, Founder of the Lavender Dragon Team, LLC

"In the information age, creating cognitively and socially engaging educational content continues to become increasingly important. Rebecca Frost Cuevas synthesizes principles of learning theory, instructional technology, visual design, and usability to create a clear approach to developing your online course. Each of these topics are addressed in other publications, but I have not seen them integrated into an action plan for online teaching and learning as effectively as Ms. Cuevas has done in this book. Her formula is brilliant. This is a must-read for anyone who wishes to teach online."
Suzanne Ama, M.S., Education, professor of digital media arts
