Instructional Design Services

UAA's Academic Innovations has a team of instructional designers ready to help you with your online course or program design. 

Online Master Course (OMC) Project

  • Robust Online Learning, Online Master Course Project
    The OMC project aims to foster higher course quality and consistency, in order to improve program outcomes and assessments. OMCs reduce the design demands on faculty, while preserving flexibility. The student experience improves because the shell targets the desired learning outcomes, provides an interactive learning environment, and connects to eLearning resources.

Quality Matters
