The eCampus Center has several services available to help faculty improve student success and retention in their online courses.
Online Course Improvement Projects
Online Course Improvement Projects involve the eCampus Research and Innovation Team partnering with individual faculty or departments to improve an online course. For a given course this process includes:
Reviewing baseline student success metrics
Creating goals related to improving student success
Collecting data to provide additional information
Identifying barriers to learning
Creating and executing a plan for improvement
The Online Mid-Semester Assessment Process (MAP) is a process overseen by the Boise State University Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) that allows online faculty to gauge how and what students are learning and to assess his or her teaching. This process normally occurs between weeks 5 and 9 of the semester and is conducted for online courses by the Research and Innovation Team. For more information about Online MAPs, please visit the Center for Teaching and Learning website.
The Research and Innovation Team at the eCampus Center can support the evaluation needs of online courses and programs, examples may include:
Creation and/or distribution of a mid-term evaluation survey
Help with the evaluation of new tools used in the online classroom
Additional analyses of course evaluation data
