Developing and delivering a great online course is a challenge with constantly evolving technology and industry standards, so the Online Course Quality Task Force worked hard last fall to do the research for you!

Join Karen Kaemmerling, Instructional Chair for Online Learning, to discuss online course design and delivery standards established by the CMC Online Course Quality Task Force. This live one hour webinar will encourage open discussion, questions, and feedback about the recommendations of the committee.
