These outcomes, organized into 6 groups (Getting Started, Instruction Basics, Instruction Advanced, Engaging Students, Supporting Success, and Connecting Students) have been identified as strategies for ensuring your course, regardless of modality, is providing opportunities for students to learn. If you click an outcome, it will direct you to a page of best-practices, technology guides, and related modalities.
