Engaging and clear course design is essential to learner success in online education. Our team develops effective educational solutions to accommodate the course needs and objectives of the content authors that we work with.
The Manitoba Flexible Learning HUB can offer consultations on designing an online course, from pedagogical to digital media options and suggestions. If you are a member of one of our partner institutions and have an online course you would like to develop with the HUB, contact us so we can get the creative process started.
