OSU established the Hybrid Course Development Pilot Program in Fall 2011 as a concerted effort to redesign selected on-campus courses for hybrid delivery. Through this program, the Center for Teaching and Learning provides instructional design services and facilitation of term-long faculty learning communities composed of small groups of faculty who are engaged in hybrid course redesign.

Ecampus Course Development and Training
The Ecampus Course Development and Training team has developed a Hybrid Course Template on Blackboard to guide OSU faculty in the design of Blackboard sites for courses that have significant online components as well as regular face-to-face meetings. This template embodies recognized effective practices in instructional design and standards for blended/online course design set forth in the Quality Matters (QM) rubric. To view the template, follow these directions (docx). Note to OSU faculty: For a zip file of the template that you can import into your Blackboard course site, contact Cub Kahn.
