Online Course Development

Creating courses to be delivered online is a combination of at least two factors.  First, faculty should be familiar with best practices for teaching and learning. Second, instructors should acquire and apply the skills to build an online class using CANVAS, our campus preferred course delivery and learning management system. The Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence (CTLE) provides faculty-to-faculty consultations on best practices and frameworks that can be used to guide the design and development of quality courses, both online and face-to-face.  Teaching & Learning Technologies (TLT) is the resource available to faculty who are ready to use CANVAS and its supporting applications to build engaging online learning experiences for students, either as mixed with face-to-face classes or as wholly online courses of study.

With our partners at the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence (CTLE) and Continuing Education & Community Engagement (CECE), we have built a recommended instructional design model or framework as a guide to building your courses. Be introduced to the Quality Course Framework (QCF) and determine how it applies to all or part of the online or face-to-face classes you are teaching. Discover the impact that "Backwards Design" can have on the success of your course design and development.

Dr. Cynthia Furse, UofU Associate VP for Research, began “flipping” or reversing teaching and learning techniques for her classes in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2007. There has been a substantial increase in student satisfaction and academic success as a result.  Dr. Furse is now regularly engaged helping other faculty flip their classes, and has helped create an NSF-sponsored online faculty training program, available through the University’s Canvas online course management system. The training program is self enrollment and self-paced.

Are you moving to teach a course as a "flipped classroom"? Teaching & Learning Technologies (TLT) has a collection of technologies available for trial use before committing to flipping a course. In a flipped course, students watch lectures online or otherwise get the bulk of their course content outside of scheduled class time. The time spent in-class is primarily devoted to going deeper into content.

You can try out technologies for a flipped classroom for a 48 hour period. Choose from a list of the available gear included in a link to a request form directly below. This specialized equipment is checked out from Teaching & Learning Technologies in the Faculty Center, Suite 1705 Marriott Library.

Is your fully online class designated as “ONLN” by the University (meaning it is taught primarily online and not face-to-face)? Does an exam for your online class require monitoring or proctoring while the student is completing a test for the online class? We offer exam monitoring with our Exam Services at the UOnline Center (Marriott Library), at satellite campuses (Bountiful, Sandy and St. George), and other off-campus venues (through special arrangements).  Faculty schedule examination time blocks for online classes entirely through our SmarterProctoring software. SmarterProctoring is accessed directly from within a Canvas-based course. Students then sign-up for exam time slots from their Canvas courses.

For the development of online offerings, the Univeristy of Utah selects programs or courses in a strategic manner. After a variety of investment investigations, departments may receive significant university resources to develop programs of study that clearly support more flexible options for sustainable course offerings and for enrolled students. The investment decision for creating and delivering online offerings are guided by strategic priorities.
