World-Class Course Design

OES has extensive experience in the design, development and teaching of programs across a broad range of disciplines. Our Learning Designers are experts in online pedagogy for courses in both traditional and emerging fields. We work closely with our partners’ academic staff to understand the desired learning outcomes, ensuring tailored online learning programs are developed that entice, engage and drive student success.

OES Learning Designers and Education Technologists integrate relevant industry technologies, learning analytics and student feedback to inform and design the delivery of world-class courses in leading Learning Management Systems.

Using the Quality Matters Framework®, each course is built drawing upon a range of pedagogical practices including interactive learning activities, infographics, videos, podcasts, discussions, case studies, and relevant readings. Work with current partners has seen OES create courses across a range of disciplines in undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and also in the sub-degree space. These include Business, Design, Education, Health Sciences, Media, Social Science and Psychology. The Learning Designers work closely with our partners’ academic staff, taking on-campus course content and assessment materials and transforming them to meet best-practice online learning pedagogy.

In addition to Learning Designers, OES employs a large team of specialists to ensure all aspects of the course are optimised for an online environment and to ensure rigorous and comprehensive quality assurance safeguards are applied at every stage of the student journey.

OES Learning Designers, Educational Technologists, Information Specialists, Content Editors, Project Managers and Multimedia Developers work together with the university partner to ensure that all course materials and assessment requirements are delivered to students at a consistently high standard and that a successful learning outcome is the key driver of all inputs.

"Swinburne Online is a key part of Swinburne’s portfolio of innovative education offerings. Through our joint venture with Online Education Services, Swinburne has become a leading provider of online education. We have learned a lot about what students need in a digital learning environment, what motivates them, and how they learn. Through Swinburne Online we are able to provide access and flexibility to learners from diverse backgrounds, for whom on-campus study is often not an option.”
