Sirius courses represent a textbook-replacement model, developed under the auspices of seasoned instructional designers and college faculty, with peer review and beta testing. The courses now number 21, spanning the disciplines of arts and humanities, mathematics, science, business, and social sciences, and can be offered in turnkey fashion at any post-secondary institution using Blackboard or other accepted learning management systems. Although printed course materials and compact discs were part of the original Sirius model, the design moves to a fully-digital, paperless, Web-delivered format in 2010. This Best practices presentation will cover the background for this innovation and the current and future efforts underway that will take the entire catalog of courses fully digital by the fall of 2010. Additionally, it will share how mobile devices and handheld eBook readers are being employed.
