The SHSU Online Course Design Rubric is used to guide and inform the course development process, as well as evaluate the design of any course which contains online components. It can be used whether the course is fully or partially online, flipped or web‐assisted face‐to‐face.
A spinoff of the rubric, the Technical Evaluation provides both SHSU Online and academic departments the opportunity to document evidence of sound pedagogical practices and establishes quality assurance standards in the online course environment.
