eCampus Online Course Support Request Process

One of eCampus' core goals is to support faculty as they develop high quality online courses that expand undergraduate learning opportunities. eCampus continuously seeks UConn faculty to design, develop, and teach online courses that meet the University's identified areas of need. Currently this need area focuses on high demand, high enrollment, General Education undergraduate courses. All interested faculty are encouraged to contact eCampus for more information prior to completing the forms found below. Please refer to the time line for specific information, dates, and deadlines.

The following documents are referenced throughout the support request process. We encourage you to learn more about the quality standards eCampus follows by reading the Quality Matters Rubric. Please be sure to read the Online Instruction Intellectual Property Agreement to learn about the existing University agreement on the intellectual property of eCampus supported online courses.
