Our E-Learning Designers support faculty in implementing the design and development of hybrid and online courses and course components. They assist faculty in identifying sound techniques and practices to enhance student learning.
In consultation with faculty, this assistance can include generating new online materials and activities or translating existing instructional materials and activities used in face-to-face instruction for online use. We can also help in selecting the best digital technology for a particular learning activity, whether a SLATE tool, an external tool, or a custom application. When moving from predominantly face-to-face instruction, they can identify strategies to transition to online delivery as well as identify best practices for online learning. Each E-Learning Designer is designated as a Certified Professional in Web Accessibility by the International Association of Accessibility Professionals to assist with creating accessible documents and online content.
E-Learning Designers can also assist in the creation of graphics, HTML files (including custom HTML templates), documents, multimedia presentations/demonstrations, rapid authoring software, and interactive learning objects. E-Learning Designers provide consultation to faculty on existing courses through collaborative review, providing new ideas and techniques to enhance student learning, identifying new strategies for assessment and evaluation, and offering media/graphical enhancement to the look and feel of a course. Additionally, E-Learning Designers are available to review educational technology deployed in courses and programs and provide technology environmental scans.
