Boise State’s eCampus provides resources and professional development to its faculty. We encourage you to browse this site as well as the sites listed at the foot of this page. In addition, you are welcome to consult with our instructional designers about any questions or needs you might have.
As part of the eCampus Center to provide an array of support service for online education, a new unit has been established to support the efforts of Boise State University’s academic departments to design and develop high-quality fully online courses and programs in order to extend the reach of the university, increase student access to educational opportunities, and meet the needs of our community and today’s diverse range of learners. Please visit our Instructional Design Support page for more information.
These guidelines assist eCampus instructors with completing important administrative steps before courses begin and while they are in session. A complete orientation handbook covering the administrative aspects and basic processes of teaching online is available for new eCampus instructors. Please read the information; and if you have any questions or feel something is missing, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
The eCampus Quality Instruction Program (eQIP) is a collaboration between Academic Technologies in the Center for Teaching and Learning, the eCampus Center in the Division of Extended Studies, and the University’s academic departments and colleges. It offers a comprehensive professional development, course improvement, and support program for faculty who teach online and the academic departments who choose to offer online courses. Proposals to participate are encouraged from all Boise State teachers — adjuncts, lecturers, or tenure-track faculty — who are approved by their academic departments and colleges to teach online. In many cases, financial support is available to participants. Complete information about eQIP is available in on this website.
The Center for Teaching and Learning regularly offers workshops for teaching faculty. These include some webcasts and webinars, along with on-campus events. Workshops that specifically cover learning technology such as Blackboard and mobile devices are also listed separately at Academic Technologies Workshops.
