Faculty Support and Resources
The Center for Instructional Support offers instructional design support and technology training to SOU instructors creating and teaching online courses as well as those using technology to enhance their face-to-face courses. Instructional design support includes outlining the course development process, providing recommendations for engaging online learners, assisting in the creation of study guides and other course materials, producing multimedia, and researching online resources. Training is available not only for Moodle, but also for a wide range of teaching technologies. Instructors are encouraged to utilize the skills and expertise of the Center's staff. You'll find us in Room 321 of Hannon Library.
