  • 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.
