Online Course Design

Are you building an online or blended course?  Instructional Technology Group provides instructional design services to help you put your course online, add an online component for blended courses, or offer innovative instructional strategies to provide the most effective learning experience for your students.


  • Do you ever wonder why learners drop your online course?  Most online learners drop out of courses due to feelings of isolation.  Learn how to build a community of learners and design engaging instructional strategies and activities.


  • Do you feel like you are spending all of your time attending to your online courses?  Learn how to design a sound course infrastructure that will facilitate a more enjoyable course delivery experience, require minimal updates over time and will reduce the amount of time you spend answering questions unrelated to course content.


  • Are your course learning outcomes not what you expected?  Learn techniques for creating assessments that effectively and efficiently provide you with the information you want to know about how well your students are progressing.


  • Looking to learn more about teaching online?  Learn how to design, develop, and manage an online course from experts in the field.   Enroll in our six-week hands-on Virtual Instructor Certificate Program and receive a certificate for 40-hours of professional development.  Hold a Texas teacher certificate?  The VICP certificate will endorse you as an official TxVSN instructor.  The $1,200 course fee is waived for CEHD faculty and staff.
