Web-Based Course Tool (Courseware)
Course iSites is a Harvard-wide web publishing system developed by the iCommons Group, a part of the Academic Technology Services within Harvard University IT, which enables faculty, teaching fellows, and staff to develop and administer course websites with flexibility and ease. The Graduate School of Design has been utilizing this system as the official online resource to advance pedagogy and provide multiple means of representation in supporting the curriculum.
All Graduate School of Design courses offered each term have a web presence automatically created for the faculty’s use. This platform provides features that empower instructors and their teaching assistants to create robust course content, facilitate knowledge sharing and communication, encourage active engagement and interaction, enable assignment and submission of class work, and function as a single portal to all course-related resources.
