Design for Online Institute

What is the Design for Online Institute?

The Design for Online Institute is a one-day, in-person institute in which participants explore the best practices in online learning and create an effective online course plan. Participants will have the opportunity to meet individually with consultants by appointment after the institute. 

The CTI is also opening an asynchronous Design for Online Course, completely online, which offers participants a more in-depth, step-by-step guide to building your online course. Find out more about the Design for Online Course.
