Standards and Principles

Ecampus Essentials

Ecampus Essentials: Partnering with faculty to develop high-quality online and hybrid learning experiences for Ecampus students is our goal. This document provides information about the research-based standards used at OSU to design online and hybrid courses, based on the Quality Matters Higher Education Rubric (6th Edition). All new and redeveloped Ecampus courses are expected to meet essential standards and are strongly encouraged to meet exemplary standards. Ecampus instructional designers support and partner with faculty to ensure standards are met.

Online Teaching Principles

Online Teaching Principles: Derived from research-based best practices, these principles are intended to supplement the QM Higher Education 6th edition course design rubric and the Ecampus Essentials to guide effective facilitation of online and hybrid courses at Oregon State University.
