It can be challenging and overwhelming for instructors to start from scratch when building online courses. Instructors may consider using a course template to make the course design process as easy and effective as possible. A course template serves as a foundation and instructors can fill in the content. UAB eLearning currently offers the following five online and hybrid course templates to instructors.

  • eLearning Online Course Template
  • eLearning Hybrid Course Template-1 Day a Week
  • eLearning Hybrid Course Template-Monday and Wednesday
  • eLearning Hybrid Course Template-Tuesday and Thursday
  • eLearning Hybrid Course Template-Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

These course templates are based on best practices for teaching online and the Quality Matters Rubric. Each template includes a course homepage, syllabus page, a course Information module, weekly modules, and a course resources module. The course information module provides the information about the course instructor, course goals, UAB policies, UAB student services, and technology resources. Below are some screenshots of the online course template. If you are interested in accessing or using these templates, please contact Tyler Weldon.
