What we do
CLASS Instructional Design & Technology provides a wide range of confidential consultation services to individuals, departments and programs for developmental and formative purposes. Because these services are designed to complement one another, we encourage instructors to use them in whatever combination will help them meet their teaching goals. While we welcome the opportunity to work with instructors on any teaching topic and develop creative solutions to many pedagogical challenges, the services listed below are among those most requested.
Course Design Consultation
Taking the time to plan the design of your course is critical to its success. Prior to beginning course development, first time and experienced instructors are strongly encouraged to discuss the design or redesign of their course(s) with the Instructional Design & Technology team.
Syllabus Design Consultation
Let our instructional design team work with you on both the substantive and formal elements of your syllabus to hone a document that is clean, clear, and responsible.
The amount of educational technology available can be overwhelming. We can help cut through the noise to find appealing, proven and effective software and web applications that will increase the learning experience of your students.
CLASS IDT offers a suite of video solutions, from short introductory videos for online courses to Mediasite full lecture capture recording with synchronized slide content.
Knowing how to craft a serious grant application is a skill that takes time to develop. We can assist the grant application process by discussing innovative instructional design and technology components that will give your project the best chance for funding.
Using the latest best practices in user interface design, our team will help streamline your Blackboard course for clarity and consistency to ensure that it becomes a resource and not a frustration for your students.
