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 online courses are equivalent in rigor, expectations, and student participation 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 more...

I would like to teach an online or hybrid course. How do I get started?

  1. First, review an overview of the Online/Hybrid Course Proposal Process.

  2. If you are planning on teaching in online or hybrid delivery for Spring 2017 or later, you are welcome to begin the proposal process at any time by submitting a draft of your proposal by way of the Google form listed below. In early fall, an email will be sent out to the campus with the same information as well as a deadline for submitting the proposal.

  3. The first component in the process is your own skills development and research. If you are planning to teach your proposed course using Blackboard, please be sure to check out Getting Started with Blackboard.
