About the Course Design Guidelines
The D2L Brightspace Course Design Guidelines are based upon the Open SUNY Course Quality Review (OSCQR) Guidelines. Some changes were made to fit the terminology used at our institution. A Course Design Guidelines review is conducted during a hybrid or online instructor’s formal evaluation period. The results of the review are emailed to the instructor and the instructor’s department chair or division director.
The guidelines cover:
Course Overview and Information
Technology and Tools
Design and Layout
Content and Activities
Assessment and Feedback
Videos that examine each of the quality benchmarks can be found on the Open SUNY Quality Review Rubric site. Please visit oscqr.org to review the videos.
