Instructional Design in Higher Education

Remote Teaching

I have drafted a set of instructions allowing faculty to effectively follow along as they prepare for their fall semester classes online.

Remote Tools and Applications

Looking beyond Zoom and Canvas, here are some other applications that could help you achieve your particular course objectives!


  1. Collaboration- G-Suite for Education apps like Docs, Slides, Forms, and Blogger allow students to work together on the same documents while in separate locations. Google slides can allow students to contribute to group presentations real time in class. 

  2. Polls – Sites like Google forms or Slido allow you to get student’s preference/ understanding before/ during / after class as well as provide insights and analytics to build insights.

  3. Bulletin Boards - Padlet allows students to post images and writing to a digital bulletin board.

  4. User Videos - Using Flipgrid, students can create and post short video clip responses in a closed-class forum.

  5. Concept Mapping- Concept mapping tools like and Groupmap are a great way to build upon previous knowledge by connecting new information back to it. When new knowledge is integrated with and connected to existing knowledge, that new knowledge is easier to understand and to remember.

  6. Trivia - Sites like Kahoot or Playfactile allows you to create online games or trivia quizzes or play games and use resources created by other teachers in the platform.

  7. Common Space - Slack offers a way to chat, share files and information, and organize conversation by topics (channels).   

Blue Cloud Computing Computer Technology

I have analysed how classes are structured before/after the pandemic for six classes at Harvard and at MIT.

Policy Class

Format: One 180 minute Lecture, Mandatory Discussion

Pedagogy/ Structure Used: Lecture, Guest speakers, Long readings, Project based

Student Feedback: Slides are disorganized, Readings are too long, Guest Speakers  didactic, but projects are exciting and relevant.

Zoom Transition: Break out features are used, Professor asks for student feedback.


Computer Science Learning Class

Format: 180 minute class once a week.

Pedagogy/ Structure Used: 

Class announcements, Student led classes,

Co-working time for projects.
Project based learning, Student Agency, Constructivism, Computational Thinking

Student Feedback: 

New class.

Professor very well received and liked by students. Tech savvy.

​Zoom Transition: 

Seamless Transition. Students were polled to accommodate Time Zone differences. Professors met before class to engage in fun games (e.g. Pictionary). Break time was led with yoga lessons by the TF. Coworking time meant getting off Zoom and switching over to Slack.

Students become Co-hosts to facilitate the class.


Media Class

Student Feedback: 

Great cohort of students. A lot of talent coming out through real-life projects.

Usage of numerous EdTech products.

​Zoom Transition: Classes are shortened to accommodate for new virtual environment. Some students submitted a pre-recorded video in lieu of live final presentation.


Statistics Class

Format: Two 90 minute classes) and (Optional) Discussions

Pedagogy/ Structure Used:  Lecture, P-sets, Group work, Data

Student Feedback: 

Material is well presented.

Professor is very available to students and tries his best to help learners understand material.

​Zoom Transition: Frequent learning checks through a separate Google form, breakouts for interaction.


MIT Class (Media Lab)

Format: 180 minute class once a week.

Pedagogy/ Structure Used: Guest Speakers, Project based 

Student Feedback: 

Casual atmosphere. Projects are not very thoroughly assessed.

​Zoom Transition:

Guest speakers over Zoom. Lectures are recorded

In this video, I demonstrate how to navigate a LMS portal for Habit 9 Education, an education startup based in Seoul.
