Committee On Online Learning (COOL)
What We Do: The COOL supports all of our
College (faculty, staff, administration, and students) as we develop and deploy
hybrid and fully online courses. We encourage and assist in the creation of new
online courses, helping to ensure they can incorporate proven pedagogical
techniques for student success, and that they can be delivered with the highest
quality possible. With that process, we help to reinforce how hybrid and

to their on-campus counterparts. We share our expertise in online delivery modes
with all faculty, in a collaborative review process that includes demonstrations
by colleagues new to the world of online teaching and learning. Read
