Develop Your Course

Whether you are developing an online or hybrid course for the first time, or the tenth time, the resources provided here will help you create a dynamic and engaging course. Use the steps below as a roadmap to develop your new course, or select a topic that you would like to focus on for your current course.

  • Create a Syllabus

    A good syllabus communicates the faculty member's decisions about teaching and learning as well as reflects disciplinary, departmental, and college/school norms regarding pedagogy, style, and the way faculty work together to develop curricula.

  • Design your Course

    Designing your course is a large undertaking, and to assist the University has developed the Drexel University Core Design Element Checklist, a list of fundamental design components that can be applied to any Drexel course.

  • Make your Course Accessible

    Accessibility of online content is a key focus area for providers of online programs. Ensuring a quality learning experience for all learners – including those with a disability – can be easier than you think.

  • Assess Student Learning

    Student assessment is a means for providing formative and summative feedback to students on their progress in achieving course learning objectives, as well as an opportunity to support a student's performance improvement.
