Developers at Penn State believe their new tool will make creating online courses easier than ever, even for the non-tech savvy.  Creating an online course requires time, patience, ingenuity — and, often, technical expertise beyond the grasp of many instructors accustomed to teaching primarily face-to-face. Developers at Pennsylvania State University’s main campus have created a tool they think will address the latter hurdle. The Headless Authoring Experience (HAX) organizes in a single browser screen all the functions necessary to create an online course or an open educational resource. Its aim, according to Bryan Ollendyke, an instructional technology systems developer, is to make the creation of online courses possible even for instructors with limited technical capabilities. “HAX is basically a way to let people write really complex HTML without having any idea that that’s what they’re doing,” Ollendyke said.
