Online Course Development


CETL/LTS e-Learning Consultants can combine technical [AND] pedagogical expertise to assist instructors to design courses that will be successful and personalized to the instructor's teaching style. We are well-versed in D2L, Kaltura, and other relevant, up-to-date technologies as well as trends and research-based strategies to teach online effectively. We can work with anyone teaching online, hybrid, flipped, or technology-enhanced courses at UWEC.

Here's what we can help you with: 

  • Talking through your ideas: we can fill in the technical details and provide additional ideas on how to transition your face-to-face teaching strategies to an online class.
  • Making connections between course outcomes, assessments, and content. 
  • Offering the student viewpoint based on our experiences as online students
    • We often say, "If I were a student in your class, I'd think this means..."
  • Sharing ideas and experiences from working with other online instructors.
  • Providing resources and templates to make the process easier and save you time.
    • This includes delegating clerical and artistic tasks for your course to our students. 
  • Individualized technology recommendations and training, as needed. 
  • Identifying timelines for completion (below) and regular meetings or periodic check-ins on progress. 
  • Technical and pedagogical assistance during the course.
  • Assistance with revisions for future offerings of the course.
  • Encouragement!
