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.

We help you use tools that can increase student success and maximize your presence in the course. We also provide opportunities for you to connect with our team and other developers across campus. 

UM3D supports instructional delivery with:

  • Ignite: our fall and spring faculty learning series
