Work with USU Online and CIDI to Create Quality Courses and Programs

After meeting within your department and deciding you want to create a 100% online course or program, submit your request to Kevin Shanley, USU Online program coordinator, at kevin.shanley@usu.edu. Kevin will then schedule a time to meet and review the submitted materials. Before the course or program moves into development, it must be approved by the department head and the Academic & Instructional Services Vice President.

If your submission is approved, Kevin will walk you through the process to ensure all paperwork is completed with accuracy. The course or program can then be developed by the Center for Innovative Design & Instruction’s (CIDI) instructional design team.

The instructor over the course or program will work with an assigned instructional designer to ensure all quality standards are met. Some of the components that go into establishing an online course or program include creating a course quality rubric, mapping the course, developing content, and more.

Once a course or program go live, CIDI will continue to work with the department to ensure all components are working. Instructional designers will provide ongoing support to maintain online courses.
