Deliver/Improve Your Distance Education Course
Launching your course (delivery)
Are you ready for prime-time? Can’t figure out when (or where, or whether) to use a forum? Not sure why your assignments look so strange? Can’t figure out exactly how to use screencasting? What did happen to your grade book?! There are several things to consider before you make your course available to students. Our ID team and the ATC can help you make sure you are ready. Contact the email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for a final review or assistance.
Course Refresh (improvement)
Course Refresh is on hiatus until Fall 2023. Details for the new process and for flexible funding opportunities will be announced in the fall. We are still here to help you with all phases of course development throughout the summer term. If you are interested in finding out more about course development options please fill out the following form and an Instructional Designer (ID) will contact you asap.
Teaching Pairs: Improving Your Distance Education Course (improvement)
Team up with colleagues to improve your distance education course through a structured, evaluative process of course review and reflection. We will set up a framework for peer review of our distance education courses using OSCQR standards and the Teaching Pairs model. There are three required Zoom meetings and online time spent reviewing one another's courses. The project time commitment is approximately 10-12 hours in total. A $400.00 stipend is awarded at the completion of the project. This project is a joint effort between Academic Technology, Faculty Professional Development, and LCC faculty. Registration is required. Limited to 14 participants.
Next session: Winter 2024
(Check with ID Services for other course development opportunities.)

Deeper Dive–Course Delivery and Improvement Resources
The ATC and your ID team are available to look through distance education courses for potential accessibility trouble spots. The Center for Accessible Resources will assist you when a student presents an accommodation request. Want an informal check? Run ALLY, our new Moodle plug-in used for running accessible document checks. Check your documents against the Accessibility Checklist. Ask your ID for help by emailing email@example.com.
Are you ready for an in-depth walk-through with an Instructional Designer? We know by now you've been working with OSCQR, the research-based, customized course quality rubric designed originally at the State University of New York System. This course rubric provides measures with current online/distance ed best practices to create a class that emphasizes regular student engagement and meaningful assessment. Our ID team can help you assess your course with the OSCQR rubric and the following checklist.
