UCF welcomes faculty, staff, and students back to campus for the Fall 2020 semester. For information and resources related to BlendFlex and Remote instruction, please refer to UCF Keep Teaching (for faculty) and UCF Keep Learning (for students) pages. Additionally, be sure to review Our Promise to Support the UCF Community and see how everyone at the Division of Digital Learning is here to support our Knights.

The Center for Distributed Learning is committed to facilitating online course quality by offering online course reviews that align closely with the State University System of Florida’s 2025 Strategic Plan for Online Education. Additionally, blended course reviews are also offered using UCF’s evidence-based standards and a faculty submitted Blended Integration chart. As an opt-in initiative, faculty who are interested in a course review will work with an instructional designer with the overall purpose of improving the learning experience of students. Elements include seamless course structure and navigation, an up-to-date syllabus, and activities which encourage meaningful learning. Once meeting the criteria, the course is eligible to convey the Quality and/or High Quality designation.

As the Summer 2020 semester comes to an end, we’d like to recognize the April 2020 – July 2020 faculty who have earned a Quality and/or High Quality designation for at least one of their online and/or blended courses. Congratulations!
