Effective Practices: Course Design
When creating or refreshing an online, hybrid, or blended course you want to follow these effective course design standards and we always want to design a course around the student learning outcomes. This is referred to as backward design. In addition, our goal is to meet the course quality design and accessibility standards as outlined here in the SUNY Online OSCQR rubric.
