Client Spotlight: Haskell Indian Nations University
Haskell Indian Nations University, the premier inter-tribal university in the United States, contracted with their LMS provider to deploy a cloud-based platform, provide faculty technical training, and curriculum development services to faculty. SilkWeb eagerly accepted the instructional design and development services request. During the three weeks leading up to the Fall semester, our instructional design team was able to develop thirty-one college courses in collaboration with Haskell's faculty. The challenges that SilkWeb faced included the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, time constraints due to the impending semester start, and faculty time commitments. Most faculty were simultaneously attending technical training and trying to quickly write content for one or more courses. SilkWeb was able to successfully deliver instructional design and development services by meeting with faculty virtually using Zoom and Collaborate sessions. SilkWeb developed a standardized course template that included custom features such as image headers and content files. Once faculty finalized their content, SilkWeb was able to migrate faculty content into the new cloud-based platform.
