Faculty Support and Resources
The Distance Education Center offers instructional design support and technology training to SOU instructors creating and teaching online courses. Instructional design support includes outlining the course development process, providing recommendations for engaging online learners, creating study guides and other course materials, providing access to a course template, producing multimedia, and researching online resources. Instructors are encouraged to utilize the skills and expertise of the Distance Education Center staff, as needed. You'll find us in Room 321 of Hannon Library.
