Provide instructional design and pedagogy support throughout the course design, delivery, and revision process by discussing options for content delivery, assessments, or activities.


Advise on applying Quality Matters standards, developing or improving courses, implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and making content accessible.

  • eLearning helped me structure my course design efforts much more effectively. By working on a regular schedule with a course designer, I was able to make a sustained effort toward revising my course rather than waiting until the last minute. After working with eLearning, I have not only a much better designed online course, but also a set of templates for structuring future courses—and not just online courses. eLearning offers a unique, hands-on, service that is tailored to the concrete needs of teachers who need help developing or revising a specific course.

  • The design team in eLearning are experts in their craft and respect my position as a content expert.  They are the easiest people to work with on campus!   They have assisted me in becoming a better instructor and I appreciate their support and great ideas.

  • From the office assistant to the head of the department, each and every one of those individuals love being there and they love helping the UAB community. I am less than proficient in anything technology-related and the instructional designers are all amazing at breaking down super complex and unfamiliar ideas into something that not only makes sense but also makes sense in your course. I have been teaching, creating, maintaining, and developing courses for quite a while and I have never enjoyed or learned so much from the process. I cannot recommend eLearning enough.
