UCA Online Interface

Instructors can quickly create online courses using the UCA Online Interface. This Interface, or template, reflects several best practices in online course design and reduces the amount of prep time instructors spend in creating a course. Using a modular organization, course materials and activities are contained within weekly content folders. This suggested organization and naming conventions for each content folder provide a better user experience. Additionally,  the Interface includes a module containing resources and activities focused on student support and success in the online learning environment.

Instructors are encouraged to use the Interface as starting point for course design, focusing their efforts on creating engaging content and activities for the best learning experience.
