eTROY Faculty Expectations for Teaching Online

Before the Start of the Term

Courses should be developed in the Blackboard “Development Shell” and then copied to a

“Term Course Shell” for teaching. If an eCourse aka Course Master exists for the course,

defining the minimum required content in the online course, such as required student

learning outcomes, testing, etc., the instructor must use these elements in his/her course.

An instructional designer will contact new online instructors, instructors with new courses,

instructors who have a new book and TROY faculty who are teaching an online course for

the first time. The instructional designer will partner with the faculty member/instructor in

preparing the online course. If a Template, eCourse/Course Master exists, defining the

minimum required content in the online course, such as required layout, student learning

outcomes, testing, etc., the eTROY Instructional Design Team will “course copy” and move

the required elements into the new instructor’s development shell and then assist with

further course design and development. Each course will receive a detailed design review

and comments about the course design. If you receive comments indicating changes are

required to your course, make them prior to copying to the “Term Course Shell” . The

instructional designer can also assist in incorporating changes in your “Development Shell.”

See the academic calendar for scheduled dates.

Before the start of each term, the Instructional Design Team will conduct a review of all term

courses. If you receive comments indicating that changes are needed to your course, make

them before your course is made “available” to students. See the academic calendar for

scheduled dates.

Instructors may make their courses “available” to students one week prior to the beginning

of class but no later than Thursday at 5:00 pm before the term begins. See the academic

calendar for scheduled dates.
