As a full-service administrative computing technology unit, we provide help to instructors for the creation, development and support of eLearn courses. eLearning courses can be fully online (ONLN) or blended (BLEN) and provide students with unique formats to pursue their studies. We have collected some essential steps below to prepare for your eLearn courses.

Submit your course outline
Please provide your course outline to your program staff so it can be updated at the public course outline system. By providing your course outline early you will be able to communicate course expectations and details to students. Program staff can upload your course outline prior to the start of term for students. Please ensure to also include your reading list as students learning at a distance from campus require time for purchasing and shipping.
Share support resources with your students
Adjusting to remote learning in the university can be daunting for our students. We've put together some text to help share resources with students right away as they begin this process. Please feel free to copy and paste this text to share it with your students.
Returning graded midterms & tests
Due to limited on-campus services to prevent the spread of COVID-19 the paper mid-term and test return service will not be offered at this time.
Prepare for the final exam
Our office receives an influx of requests each year. To ensure that we are aware of your exam/test requirements for your online or blended course(s), please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Subject: ATTN: Exam Dates [INSERT DATES]
- Your name, Course ID and section
- For exams: Dates, times, duration
- For tests: Dates, times
Let us know if you will be using alternate exam versions for students writing off-site. Keep in mind that we will be consulting with you regarding students writing in varying time zones and will need to confirm the off-site exam dates.
