Course Design and Development
Faculty are strongly encouraged to work with the CLT staff in their online course design and development. The CLT director will coordinate the collaboration between the faculty and the CLT staff. It is strongly recommended that the instructor complete the Berks eLearning Academy program as well as take advantage of the Berks Learning Technologies Certificate program and other faculty development opportunities.
It is mandatory for online instructors to complete the training on the University?s current learning management system (LMS) if they haven?t received the training or fail to prove that they are experienced users of the LMS. The instructor utilizes the Penn State Quality Assurance e-Learning Design Standards and the Course Accessibility Guidelines to guide the entire course design and development process.
