Carleton develops cuOpen to teach best practices in online instruction

October 30, 2015

While PSE offers many opportunities for face-to-face interactions with students, it does not provide much help for how to teach in blended and online contexts, according to Joy Mighty, Carleton University’s Associate Vice President for Teaching and Learning. At a recent conference in South Africa, she presented her institution’s response to this challenge: cuOpen, a certificate program offering a variety of tools for online education. The 35-hour course takes the student through developing and teaching an online course. The course is free and unbranded, and has been used by several Ontario universities. University World News
