Online Course Development institute (OCDi)

The purpose of the OCDi is to assist the participant in incorporating best practices in the development of an online course and prepare faculty to teach online. The training was developed and is facilitated by the staff at the Center for Online Learning at EIU.  The training is primarily based on selected standards from the Quality Matters Higher Education Rubric (Fifth Edition, 2014). The participant completes readings and learning activities from eight content modules in an effort to incorporate best practices in the development of an online course. The topics focus on effective online course design and online teaching. After the training is complete, the participant will submit the online course developed during the training for review.
