Thinking About Developing an Online Course?

Did you know that 47 percent of on-campus students have taken an online course? When asked, students point out that flexibility is a key factor for taking courses online. For instance, during the summer, students can go home or work in far off places but still stay on track for timely degree completion by taking courses online.

Online courses have been developed from all across the academic spectrum and from every college on campus. The eCampus Center has instructional designers who are experts in best practices for online course design and instruction to help faculty through the process. Athletic therapy, film and literature, and criminal justice are among the courses that faculty designed and developed for online instruction through Boise State’s eCampus Quality Instruction program (eQIP) during fall 2017.

Last fall, 12 individuals participated in eQIP professional development offerings to design and develop or redesign their fully online courses. During the same semester 17 faculty polished their online teaching skills by participating in the eCampus Teaching Online Seminar (eTOS), and 16 courses completed Quality Matters™  peer reviews.

Available through the eCampus Center each semester, eQIP has “seats” available in the following upcoming offerings:
