This site was developed to serve as an online repository of information and resources for faculty teaching online courses as well as “hybrid” courses that include both classroom and online instruction.  The resources provide multiple sources of information and examples from various higher education Web sites.
We invite you to explore the available teaching and learning resources in the hopes that a large amount of the information will prove useful for online instructors.  Please contact our instructional technologist, Robin Jones, at for assistance.
