Steps for requesting online course development support:

Step 1:  Contact the Director of the COL to schedule a consultation appointment. 

  • Consultation appointments are available online, by phone, or in person.
  • During the appointment, you will select a course template if necessary.
  • You will identify the attributes for the content to be published.

Step 2:  Provide the Content.

  • The content must be provided in a format that can easily be posted in D2L.

Step 3:  The COL staff publishes the content to your D2L course according to your specifications.

Requirement:  The instructor must agree to allow the Director of the COL to add a COL graduate assistant to the course in D2L with instructor access to complete the requested tasks.
