Online learning is very different from traditional face-to-face classroom instruction. While online learning can provide busy adult students with much-needed flexibility, developing an engaging online course atmosphere while also ensuring academic integrity can be a challenge.

Attendees will learn about Quality Matters, curriculum design aspects related to online courses, legalities related to online course delivery, accessibility considerations, competency-based delivery, academic integrity tools, and online assessment strategies.
