Full Tilt Ahead to Provide Content, Web Development, and Custom Software for  University of Virginia’s Interactive Online Class, Course, and Curriculum Design Tool

Norcross, GA – The University of Virginia (UVA) awards the educational technology company Full Tilt Ahead (FTA) the cDesign project, which will be an “Interactive Online Class, Course, and Curriculum Design Tool.”

The goal of the cDesign tool is to aid in the design of evidence-based, student-focused, learning-centered courses.

cDesign will introduce higher education faculty members, both at the University and other institutions, to the iterative, dynamic, and scholarly process of learning-centered course design. The tool will help instructors:

  • Master these concepts by allowing them to explore rich educational content that the University’s Teaching Resource Center (“TRC”) has created.
  • Gauge their understanding through a variety of interactive knowledge checks.
  • Dynamically see the quality of their design as it evolves.

The tool will also help create a learning-centered syllabus based on user input. cDesign will be based on and will incorporate many of the features of UVA’s Teaching Resource Center’s weeklong, face-to-face Course Design Institute (“CDI”): Course Design Institute.

Michael Palmer, Associate Professor and Assistant Director of UVA’s Teaching Resource Center, says, “Full Tilt Ahead's experience, broad skill set, enthusiasm, creativity, and willingness to take the kind of risks needed to get this ground-breaking project off the ground set them apart from other educational technology companies.”
