This course was built by Blackboard, not by Kent State University.  It is self-paced and is facilitated by Katie Baer, Educational Technology Designer at Stark Campus.  While it set up as a full online course, all activities are optional as faculty may not be taking the course at the same time.

This course includes topics as follows:

  • Getting Started
  • Assessing Learners
  • Building Courses
  • Building Online Communities
  • Designing Engaging Content
  • Monitoring Student Performance


To register for this course, please email Katie Baer.  She will contact you to
confirm your enrollment.  Once enrolled, you may work through the course at your
own pace.
