In partnership with the Division of Student Learning and Academic Success, the Division of Digital Learning coordinated a campus wide Digital Learning Course Redesign Initiative (DL CRI).


Data have shown that when well-designed and delivered online (W), blended (M), adaptive, and active learning outperform face-to-face instruction.

In a longitudinal study over 20 years at UCF, the blended course modality consistently outperformed both traditional classroom and fully online courses on three scales:

  • student success (final grade of A, B, or C)
  • withdraw rate
  • student satisfaction (SPI overall Excellent)

The Divisions of Digital Learning and Student Learning and Academic Success combined their design and development experiences. They applied evidence-based instructional practices and support strategies to bring about more successful learning experiences for students in our most challenging courses.

Between 2018-2022, the DL CRI engaged in a three-year plan with an added group project extension. The pages below highlight the data and results from the original DL CRI. They also include faculty spotlights and the background of the DL CRI Extension featuring the group projects.
