The Instructional Design Studio
Online Program and Course Development
The MFA membership realizes that hybrid and online course, minor, certificate, and degree program delivery is key to both UDM's status as a regional leader in higher education and its ability to attract and retain more undergraduate and graduate students world wide. The development and offering of any online course, online minor, online certificate, or online degree program must meet a standard for quality, including sound learning objectives, student engagement, and copyright compliance. The responsibility for achieving all these criteria is a shared task of the faculty, the college/school curriculum committees, the college/school deans, the program review committees, and the overall McNichols Faculty Assembly.
Hybrid or online courses or programs that are developed must meet a university standard for quality, sound learning objectives, student engagement, and be copyright compliant. Instructional designers are available to assist faculty in the development of the online product while this checklist is made available so that faculty and the university can track quality control, required approval(s), and that notifications are provided to the appropriate people and/or offices. In addition, the tracking of this information is important to meet The Higher Learning Commission requirements.
