The Office of Distance & Digital Learning works closely with faculty, students and staff to advance, educate, promote and direct online and other digital learning offerings and services on campus, and beyond.

The following are the four main components in which our services and activities are organized.

Course Design

The instructional design team is dedicated to the support of faculty in the design and development of active, experiential online or blended learning. Working from articulated learning outcomes, we help faculty plan and implement online courses that are learner-driven, innovative and academically rigorous.  Learn more.

Quality Assurance & Review

Our quality process – which encompasses course design, accessibility and copyright – is focused on the Quality Matters model of continuous improvement. You’ll work closely with our quality team to ensure that the course design is clear, engaging and student-centered, and that learners feel supported by the way in which the course is organized.  Learn more.
