Online/Hybrid/HyFlex Instruction

Effective teaching begins with thoughtful planning. Instructional design involves the systematic planning for developing and implementing instructional curriculum. 

Course Review

The Course Review process helps you to ensure quality standards are addressed when designing your course to set you up for success when teaching online. See the Online/Hybrid Instruction page on InsideState for more information.

Online/Hybrid Instructor Certification

Our Online/Hybrid Instructor Certification program information is a comprehensive training program that focuses on the pedagogy and best practices of teaching online/hybrid courses. It does not teach the participants how to use the D2L tools within an online course, but rather focuses on teaching strategies for the online environment. If you complete the entire certification through the master level, you will also receive a $2,000 stipend. Contact Kim Vig with any questions about this training. See the Online/Hybrid Instruction page on InsideState for more information.

Course Design House

The Course Design House program involves working with one of our learning designers to build or re-build a course. Give us your contents - we give you a course. IDS works with the designated course contents expert on course design and development. At the end a fully developed online/hybrid course is turned over to the instructor, department or college.

The IDS Instructional Designer identifies the syllabus, contents, learning activities, assessments, technology applications and best practices. These individual course development components will be divided between the contents expert and IDS. The contents expert primarily will be responsible for creation of syllabus, learning outcomes, contents, learning activities and assessments. The Instructional Designer will put all course components together as a course. Contact IDS to learning more about the Course Design House process.
