Courses through the beginning of 2017 academic year have been archived. View our Course Archiving page for full information. 

About Us

Distance Education support is not only for faculty who teach full ecourses; distance education support is for ALL faculty. You can ask instructional designers real-time questions in the General Posts, get access to training information from OLL and vendors, view training videos, see instructions for tools in our File sharing tab, and view our topic-specific Channels, such as our Tech Talk Tuesdays channel and our Teams for Class channel on the Distance Education Support Community Team. If you have questions about where to start, how to access Blackboard, add your Syllabus and course content, link to virtual classrooms, we can help you! Blackboard is for every course, not just “distance education” courses.
