The Open Learning Initiative (OLI), with contributions from the Vice Provost of Teaching and Learning at Stanford University, has developed freely available resources to support the creation of high quality online courses. These materials were partially funded by O.P.E.N., the Open Professionals Education Network, which is sponsored by the Gates Foundation to support Department of Labor (DoL) Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College & Career Training (TAACCCT) grantees. These resources include six interactive modules on Creating Effective Online and Blended Courses. These interactive modules focus on evidence-centered best practices in online learning and will provide users the opportunity to engage in hands-on application of the content. The modules are designed to help instructors develop online courses or incorporate online learning approaches in their on-campus classes, with a particular focus on 2- and 4-year higher education institutions.
