Course Design and Planning

Course design and planning services are at the heart of UM3D. Our instructional designers work one-on-one with course developers to produce quality instruction. This process often begins when:

  • a department proposes a new fully online program
  • when faculty propose a new online course
  • when it is time to redesign an existing online course

UM3D also consults and collaborates with faculty to: 

  • integrate student success services
  • improve student's online readiness
  • research course analytics
  • implement universal design for learning (UDL)

Please contact us today at um3d@memphis.edu to begin planning your project.
