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.

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.
