Tune up your course!

Now that you have converted your course(s) to Canvas, it is time to do some fine-tuning by applying best practice standards outlined in the OEI Rubric.  Spend an hour or two with one of the Faculty Center team to analyze and discover strategies that will save you time while improving the quality of online design and delivery methodologies.  

Is your course Accessible?

Let us help you calibrate your online course materials using the new OEI Course Rubric accessibility checklist.  We can answer questions and show you how to make adjustments to comply with CCC and federal accessibility standards.  Check out more information about accessibility tools and/or make an appointment with one of us today!
