IU Online offers more than 100 online degrees and academic certificate programs and hundreds of online classes from all of Indiana University's campuses. IU Teaching Online Series (TOS) is a self-paced, customizable design and teaching resource delivered through Canvas and available for download in Canvas Commons as an open educational resource (search "IU Teaching Online Series").
The TOS currently includes seven modules that include guidance on creating measurable learning outcomes and effective assessment strategies as well as fostering faculty presence and student engagement. The modules allow faculty who are new to digital education to start building a robust student experience from the ground up with explicit attention to instructional design principles and appropriate pedagogy. The modules demonstrate appropriate use of a range of external tools (from planning matrices in MS Word to interactive quizzing tools to more complex instructional tools such as Voicethread) and also point users to supporting scholarly resources, such as peer-reviewed articles that contextualize the design recommendations. The modules are designed to allow users to easily curate a single package that aligns with their own needs.
