Online Students

Design, Build, Teach: This site is for St. Cloud State faculty designing new online and hybrid courses, or translating face-to-face courses to an online or hybrid format. We have gathered planning guides and other tools to streamline creating an online course. By following a systematic process, instructors can create courses based on pedagogical goals, using appropriate structure, content, activities, and assessments.

The best way to determine how to offer a distance learning course is to consider these items:

  1. What do you want your students to know?
  2. How do you teach this on campus?
  3. How comfortable are you with technology – and do you want to learn?

There are various opportunities for professional development around designing and teaching online courses. Please Contact us to further discuss options and available technologies.
