So far I've identified 3 rubrics:
Pisik, G. B, (1997). Is this course instructionally Sound? A guide to Evaluating Online Training Courses. Educational Technology, July-August 1997, 50-59 (ERIC #EJ547832).
I found this one digging around The Sloan Consortium website. The Pedagogy Effectiveness Index (PEI) from MIT developed by Dr. Nishikant Sonwalker
The PEI serves as an indicator of the pedagogical richness of a course.
Evaluation of Online Course (based on Principles of Online Design, http://www.fgcu.edu/onlinedesign) which I first saw reference to in Sue McDaniel's 516 blog and as it came up in two of my database searches, I, too, decided it was a worthwhile resource.
I appreciate insight into the Pedagogy Effectiveness Index. It seems to be a rubric but the article seems to focus on a formula for determining the score of rubric, though the criteria Dr. Sonwalker utilizes seems very close to the requirements laid out by Dr. West. Maybe I need to find a better or different example. And maybe I just need to read the article a time or two again...?
As for courses to evaluate, I could evaluate the IDT 510 and IDT 516 classes but maybe that's just plain silly?
In my research I came across a course on HTML I had used years ago to learn and refine some of my HTML skills found at Maricopa Center for Learning and Instructions. It is a dated course as it hasn't been updated since 2000.
Another consideration of mine is to evaluate one of Web Monkey's tutorials out of the following three categories; Authoring, Design, or Multimedia.
Any input, words of wisdom, insights (especially from Dr. West), are appreciated.
