Office/Remote Location

The Office of Online Education, Room 101


Need to design your online course before the start of the semester? Join us for this hands on workshop. The Online Education course template provides a modular/weekly structure that helps instructors to design their course content for online delivery. We will explore the how and why of using the template as a starting point for building an online course in Canvas. We will also address essential best practices for online course design.

Participants must:

  • Bring your laptop and a digital version of your course syllabus.

  • Have login access to Webcampus and a Canvas course shell.


  • Other course materials (digital versions of assignments, readings, etc…)

Presenter: Swasati Mukherjee


Instructors completing this workshop will be able to:

  • Apply the Online Education template to their course
  • Recognize instructional design best practices
  • Explore resources for developing their online course
