Follow these simple steps to get your course up and running!
1) Meet with your department chairperson and/or program director to inform them that you would like to teach a hybrid/online course.
2) The easiest way to get started is to convert an existing F2F course, that you've previously taught, to the hybrid/online environment. you may also add a new section of an existing course.
3) Determine the mix of F2F/online time. for example, if your class meets 1 hour 3x per week, you may want to convert the course to hybrid by meeting F2F 2 days and the rest of the class time online. or, if your class meets 1 1/2 hours 2x per week, you may want to convert the course to hybrid by meeting F2F 1 day and the rest of the class time online. You may post a question in the discussion tab of this page if you are unsure about the F2F/online class time.
4) Determine what technology you will utilize as your course management system. most faculty use blackboard and eportfolio. Others use their own website. It is recommended that you use blackboard and/or eportfolio as your course management system since they are closed systems that requires students to sign-in with a unique username and password.
