Online Learning Support

During the COVID-19 pandemic, educators around the world are being asked to help students continue their studies.

皇冠搏彩中心 is proud to offer the expertise of online teaching experts from across our network of Texas universities and partner organizations who have built top-ranked online undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Led by 皇冠搏彩中心’s Chief Learning Officer, Heather Farmakis, Ph.D., 皇冠搏彩中心’s eLearning Team offers support in several key areas of need including:

  • Design of high quality and scalable online courses and programs.

  • Methods and support to ensure the quality of standards in online offerings.

  • The creation of resources and professional development for faculty members in online teaching.

  • Consultation and collaboration to address specific concerns like academic honesty, accreditation, policy, and governance for online learning.
