COIL Course Development

The SUNY Cooperative Online International Learning (COIL) initiative is designed to support the development of classes in which students in domestic classes interact in a meaningful manner with students from a partner class in a foreign country.  Student interaction may be synchronous or asynchronous and relies on a variety of web 2.0 tools (including wikis, blogs, Nings, course management systems, Skype, Google talk, Google Docs, VoiceThread, YouTube, Vimeo, Imgur, and Picasa). Three faculty members at Oswego are currently developing COIL classes. We are hoping to have several additional COIL classes offered during the 2012-2013 academic year.

This workshop is for those developing COIL courses and for those considering the development of such courses. Status reports will be provided for courses under development. A discussion of issues and problems encountered during the development of these courses will take place.
