CAS Online Course Standards

The links on the right contain standards and suggestions dealing with different aspects of online learning that are drawn from many years’ experience. While we haven’t thought of everything or addressed every issue, this information can help you avoid some common problems that keep your students from succeeding.

We have also created a rubric to help faculty developing a course see where they are in the design process and better understand expectations for course development. Use of this rubric and self-assessment tool represents a developmental process for online course design and delivery and provides a means for an instructor to self assess based on best practices.
