Instructional Design


The Instructional Design team provides assistance with design and development for online and hybrid teaching environments. Assistance is available at multiple levels with module, course and program options. From help using Blackboard to flipping your online program, our instructional designers are here to help.

eLearning Design & Development Services

  • Program Design & Development

    We can help as you prepare to make your program available to learners in an online or hybrid environment. AI&e will work with you to identify core issues, make recommendations, lay out and complete an appropriate program design & development path from policy to professional development.

  • Course Design & Development

    Sometimes an individual course needs to be designed or revised – perhaps a textbook has changed, the course has become dated, or you just feel the need to do an overhaul. We will help facilitate course design and development using course design and development best practices; our services in this area include needs assessment, design and development planning, professional development, and peer review.

  • Quality Matters Program

    Quality Matters is a tool, professional development, and service offered by AI&e. Faculty members may use the QM Rubric to design an online or hybrid course as well as to conduct or obtain review of the course design. Professional development is available to help you learn how to use the rubric and participate in peer review of online course design. Click for more information on Quality Matters...

  • Learning Objects

    Our designers will build or teach faculty members to build custom learning objects for use with eLearning in any environment. Modules can be standalone on the web, plugged into a Blackboard course, or made available for mobile devices.

  • Technology Support & Consultations

    Occasionally faculty members need some advice on or troubleshooting help with  academic technologies. Perhaps you are looking for a new tool; maybe you're having trouble figuring out how to do that calculated column in your Blackboard Learn Grade Center; or possibly Voicethread is not interfacing with a course in the way that you expected. We can help with all of our core tools or point you in some useful directions to explore.
