Course Design at UCO


The Center for eLearning and Connected Environments (CeCE) is proud to partner with UCO faculty in the development of quality online and hybrid courses. CeCE offers instructional design and technology support in the development of over 100 courses per year in an effort to advance the University’s commitment to transformative, blended learning opportunities for UCO students.



Applying to Design a Course at UCO



CeCE works with faculty throughout the year to design quality learning experiences for UCO students. Follow the steps below to begin the course design process.

Once the Dean's Office has approved your application it will be forwarded to CeCE for processing. At that time we will add it to our course design prioritization list and contact you when your slot comes available.

Note: Applications are accepted and processed throughout the year. We typically have 25-30 active design projects that last between 1-4 months each. Most applicants are contacted within 60 days of initial application to begin their course design project; however, we cannot guarantee that time frame as it is dependent on when active design projects conclude.




Our Pledge to Faculty Designers



We fulfill this pledge by guaranteeing the following:

  • A focused design process that is easy and enjoyable to help you create a successful online or hybrid course. 

  • A Certified Learning Environment Architect™ that is dedicated to providing you with personalized support throughout the entire design process.

  • The final product of an outstanding course that exceeds the UCO Online Quality Course guidelines

  • Ongoing support from a collaborative team of 6 Instructional Designers, 4 Instructional Technologists, 3 experts in Photography and Video Production, and an ADA Specialist to support all course designs at UCO.
