Nomination Deadline: Monday, September 30, 2019

Institutions are invited to nominate one eCourse to receive this award.  An eCourse is defined as one where fifty percent or more of the instruction and activities take place at a distance.  Only courses developed in-house at a post-secondary institution will be considered.

The course must be designed with a high level of interactivity, multimedia, communication, and variety of instructional and course management strategies. These strategies must be replicable and assist an instructor to facilitate more effectively; continuously evaluate student performance and course quality; and provide an outstanding educational experience for the students. Information about the course will be gathered from the application and access to the course for verification and review will be used for the evaluation.

eCourses are nominated by their institution’s president/CEO, Provost/Academic Vice President, dean, department chair, faculty, or instructional designer. Nominees should not use more space than is allotted on the application. An excellent overall plan of instructional design must be present throughout the course presentation, content, activities, evaluation, and course management.
