Do you need help to raise the quality of an online learning component? Use this Rubric for Online Instruction to evaluate existing courses, self-evaluate your own online course, or to help you design new online courses. The Rubric has been modified in 2009 to include some language to better align instruction guidelines with "accessibility for all." The companion piece "Instructional Design Tips for Online Learning" checklist is recommended to use along with the Rubric. It was designed by Joan Van Duzer of Humboldt State University. Check it out, http://www.csuchico.edu/tlp/resources/rubric/instructionalDesignTips.pdf. Over 95 institutions are currently using or modifing this rubric for their needs, as of May, 2009.
