Canvas 2.0: Online Course Design Standards

Go where you've never gone before

Ready for the next leg of your online teaching journey? 

Prerequisite: Open to Canvas-Certified Faculty
Length: 3 weeks

This class will familiarize you with the Course Design Rubric, a roadmap for quality online course design created by California Community Colleges (CCCs) and the Online Education Initiative (OEI).  The Rubric has been a statewide model since 2014, enabling more students to complete their educational goals by increasing access to and success in high-quality online courses.

In this class, we’ll guide you toward increasing both equity and effective student engagement through quality course design. You’ll learn about the four areas of the Course Design Rubric – Content Presentation, Interaction, Assessment, Accessibility – and see dozens of examples of how you can begin to align your course.

Faculty who complete this class with a grade of 70% or higher will be eligible to receive a $300 stipend and 15 hours of Flex.
