The purpose of the online course within this creative component is to introduce individuals in a community college setting to small-scale poultry farming to provide the fundamentals of poultry production. The importance of this course was to grant students the opportunity to assess if they had the desire to learn more about the poultry industry and to gauge their interest in whether to seek a career in the field. With the COVID-19 pandemic in force at the current time, it was likely that more students would be thinking about enrolling in online courses to acquire their education. The creative component presents a syllabus and seventeen units. The instructional design is based upon, Quality Matters Standards for Higher Education, and Bloom’s Taxonomic Levels. Content was sourced from government, private, or university or/extension. This combination provides a comprehensive, and learner-centered approach to the introductory of small-scale poultry production.
