Distributed Learning Model Online Course

The Instructional Design team at the Center for Teaching Excellence have compiled components from several courses to create a Model Course to give you an idea of how to create a distributed learning course.

How to Self-Enroll

The Model Online Course is designed around the university’s quality assurance standards – which are based on the Quality Matters™ Rubric. Faculty can use any of the information in the sample course for their own course.
