Program Description:
Everybody Wins with Universal Design for Learning
This self-paced course introduces you to a 7-Step process to ensure your course will provide an an inclusive, positive learning experience for all learners.  This course is best taken before building your first online course.  You'll understand the importance of building UDL principles into your course. It is so much harder to go back after the course is built to apply these principles .  Start your Canvas learning here. Everybody Wins with Universal Design for Learning will continue to serve you as an ongoing resource.   
 
Canvas Quickstart 4.0
This self-paced course follows our course development process with a multitude of hints, how-to's and resources. This site will facilitate your design and development of your online course.  This is a Canvas “how to” that will help you get up and going with your first Canvas online course.  Canvas has guides and video tutorials that demonstrate, in detail, how to use the tools in Canvas. We have provided links to additional resources in each module. 
 
Essentials of Course Management 4.0
This self-paced course introduces options and examples to help you think through how your noncredit course will function on the UM System One Canvas platform and integrate with Catalog, myExtension, Cherwell and other technologies. We'll even discuss a few critical differences between academic and noncredit courses. You will explore various student enrollment, access and participation options. At the other end of your course, you need to understand your course completion options and responsibilities, and how to offer and use course completion certificates. Lastly, we'll look at your course renewal options: copy a course or add a new course enrollment section to an existing course.
 
Canvas "Live"
This short, self-paced course provides you with the knowledge and skills to facilitate synchronous online course sessions using the Canvas-Zoom learning technology integration (LTI). Using our Canvas-Zoom integration will make it easier for you to schedule and host sessions and post session recordings. Our Canvas-zoom integration will make it easier for students to join your  sessions and view session recordings. And, your students don't have to download and install any software or set up a Zoom account.  
 
MU Extension Course Quality by Design
This site is not a "course" in the academic sense. There are no learning objectives, assignments, grades or course completion requirements.  This site is a resource and guide to help you implement MU Extension's online course continuous improvement process.  Your first time using our Course Quality Review process, consider the QCR something to aspire to, not a judgement on your existing course or a barrier to offering your course.
 
Quick-Guide to Instructional Video Design
A common factor in in education today is that we must examine instruction from both a technology and a teaching and learning perspective. We’ll start by looking at our 6-step video development process, focused on the technical aspects of video development with tips and tools for every step. Then, in Module 2, we'll get theoretical and examine effective teaching and learning with videos. Lastly, we'll explore transitioning an existing PowerPoint to video.
