Features and Benefits

  • The outcomes based nature of Course360 courses ensures your ability as the instructor to effectively measure your students' retention of concepts. Course360 only includes content that helps to support the outcomes for the course; nothing more and nothing less. This helps to guarantee that students will have all the tools they need to learn the content, but not an over-abundance of material which can cause distraction. Every reading, video, animation, article and assessment in Course360 works to support the outcomes that serve as the foundation of the course.
  • Course360 uses a variety of creative assessment types to ensure that students can demonstrate not only course skills, but also critical thinking and problem solving as well. Assessment types found in Course360 include: Multiple-choice and short-answer questions, case studies and analyses, essays and research papers. In addition, cooperative and collaborative activities like interactive discussions are included to help reinforce important soft skills. Course360 measures cognitive outcomes using Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning. Students are assessed against measurable outcomes and objectives from the lowest levels of thinking—simple recall—to the highest—making judgments and evaluations—with a strong focus on application of learning.
  • Whether your course is taught entirely online or in a hybrid combination of online learning with in-class instruction, Course360 offers the flexibility to accomplish all of your curriculum goals.Our courses are designed to contain 120 hours of student work which is equivalent to the amount of time spent in a 3 credit hour course within a semester term. Course360 is easily adaptable to other formats and delivery methods and works within the Learning Management System of your choice. Courses can also be customized to include your class material, as well as your school's branding. If you're looking for something completely different, Course360 has a dedicated course development team with years of experience building online courses to customer specifications. And as your needs change, we ensure that your programs keep pace.
  • You've told us that an engaged learner is a more successful learner. Course360 draws students into the subject matter using a broad array of multimedia resources including animations, games, simulations, podcasts and dynamic self-assessments. These components encourage active learning and support a variety of learning styles. Interaction doesn't stop at multimedia activities. In our courses, students interact with each other. There are graded and non-graded discussions, team projects and the option for Web 2.0 activities such as blogs and wikis. Course360 creates a collaborative learning environment in which ideas can be shared and concepts learned. Course360 is the way today's students learn.
  • Each Course360 course comes with our Course Design Document which contains a full map of the course's design. The Course Design Document contains everything from charts and tables that illustrate relationships between the content and the outcomes and objectives in the course, to teaching tips and grading rubrics for all our assignment types. This comprehensive document provides all the tools you need to implement the course and to make it your own while still maintaining the integrity of the instructional design. Course Design Documents may also be a useful tool during accreditation processes.

Student Guide to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act  (ISBN-10: 0324827199 | ISBN-13: 9780324827194)

Enron was once the seventh-largest company on the Fortune 500. Yet, in the wake of revelations of accounting irregularities and securities fraud, it became entangled in the greatest business scandal of a generation and was essentially blinked out of existence after declaring bankruptcy. Similar accounting scandals at Global Crossing, Tyco, WorldCom, Adelphia, HealthSouth, and other companies prompted Congress to pass the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) in June 2002. This revolutionary act, which embodies the most significant securities law changes since the original federal securities laws of 1933 and 1934, contains provisions that create a new federal agency, restructure the entire accounting industry, reform Wall Street practices, dramatically alter corporate governance practices here and abroad, and attack insider trading and obstruction of justice. A lot has happened since its passage. The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has come into being, and the PCAOB and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) have issued countless rules to implement the SOX's many legislative mandates. This short guide focuses not only on what each part and section of the SOX means but also on what businesses need to know now that is has been implemented.
