Course Design Standards

Ecampus Essentials

Ecampus Essentials: Partnering with faculty to develop high quality online learning experiences for Ecampus students is our goal. The Ecampus Essentials document provides information about the research-based standards used to design online courses. All new and redeveloped courses are expected to meet essential standards noted here and are strongly encouraged to meet exemplary standards. Ecampus instructional designers support and partner with faculty to ensure standards are met.
