We work one on one with faculty to first analyze course content, and then update and improve it specifically for online delivery. Many instructors are excellent at teaching face to face, but lack the experience and expertise to deliver course content effectively online. We bridge that gap. We don’t just update the content. We provide instructors with best practices and best use of the tools and technologies the school has already adopted. We also serve as a resource for instructors throughout the semester answering questions and assisting with updates as needed. We have helped many schools not just transition to online, but rapidly improve the quality of their online offerings and ease anxiety for faculty.
