Online Course Essentials Policy Guide

The Center for Teaching Excellence’s goal is to partner with faculty to develop high quality online and hybrid learning experiences for online students. This document provides information about the research-based standards used to design online and hybrid courses. All new and redeveloped courses are expected to meet “essential” standards and are strongly encouraged to meet “exemplary” standards. Every aspect of an online course is represented in terms of an “essential” standard as well as “exemplary”. The CTE Instructional Designer/Educational Technologist, trained as a QM peer reviewer, will support and partner with faculty to ensure standards are met in course reviews.
