Welcome to the Teaching Toolkit

The ECU Teaching Toolkit

Great courses don’t happen by accident; they are a result of careful planning and deliberate design. The importance of precise design and planning becomes even more essential when we teach hybrid or online courses.
The ECU Teaching Tool Kit contains a series of lessons that walk you through designing and building a course leveraging researched-based best practices to help ensure your success.

This toolkit is adapted from the “Design for Online Learning Toolkit” from Arizona State University
