Online Education

A Division of the Office for the Advancement of Teaching & Learning


The goals of Online Education, a division of the Office for the Advancement of Teaching & Learning are threefold: to help faculty and departments design and teach high quality online and blended courses, and to support students learning in these environments. To that end, we have divided our site into two distinct sections: one for Faculty and one for Students. Each section contains a multitude of resources to help ensure online and blended course success. Whether you are taking an online or blended course or designing one to teach, we are here to help!
