The final moments have arrived after spending many painstaking hours developing your video-based course in Open edX! Your hard work is about ready to pay off. 🎉 You now enter the "quality control" stage to verify that your course meets the minimum requirements. We fully expect a final draft of your course, not a working draft.
You should plan on this stage taking several weeks and require revising your course after each step.
Important documents to reference:
Пункт "4.5 Оценивание курсов" в Положение открытых онлайн курсах П НАО «ВКТУ» 125-I-2022 детально описывает процесс.
Each step is a review and revision cycle designed to improve the quality and professionalism of your course. You will find items to correct, your beta-tester will see inconsistencies, and we will identify problems.
Step goal: To create a final draft of your course
The first step is to complete the self-evaluation form to verify that the course meets all the requirements. We will evaluate your course only after you have evaluated your own course and revised it accordingly.
Документ "Форма проверки “Открытых курсов” ВКТУ" будет фиксировать вашу историю изменений и оценивания курса, который будет подтверждать, что он прошел официальную оценку и соответствует требованиям. Надеемся, что ваш курс уже соответствует требованиям, если вы заполняете эту форму.
First, please contact us to share a Google Document copy of
Форма проверки “Открытых курсов” ВКТУ with you.
Please keep the document as a Google Document instead of downloading it to Microsoft Word or other formats.
- You can access it at https://drive.google.com/a/edu.ektu.kz
- You will share this document with your beta tester and then transfer ownership of the document to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step goal: To identify problems or inconsistencies in the course that you missed
The second step is to ask your beta-tester to review your course. Please read the section on the site Партнер, рецензент или бета-тестер? if you are not familiar with beta testing and the role it plays in the development process.
Beta tester, your task is to look at the course from the outside as a learner and give your review on quality control. You perform a critical role because many problems you find are not clear to the course author, such as a document that is not shared correctly. You check the technical part of the course to confirm that everything works, and you also look for unprofessionalism that may distract the learner (course participant). For example, you're looking for misspelled words, incorrectly formatted text, unclear instructions, broken links, videos that don't play, Google docs that aren't published correctly, and so on. You will put your comments in the course author's self-evaluation document. Also, please use the checklist in the same document to help you evaluate the course.
Step goal: To start the official review of the expert committee by ЦОТ to perform a quality check to verify that the course meets the course-design standards.
The third step is to start the formal evaluation after you and your beta tester have both thoroughly evaluated your course.
Step goal: To complete the course review process by the faculty or department to verify that the course content meets academic standards and has educational value.
Lastly, your department will review the course content from an educational perspective because we are not subject matter experts. The committee will verify that your content is appropriate for the intended audience and meets the desired educational outcomes. They will note any requirements or recommendations in document

Congratulations! Your course will be transferred to https://open.ektu.kz once all expert committee members sign the course validation form.
