Course Design Support

Through close collaboration with subject matter experts, Instructional Designers can help design purposeful learning objectives, create engaging course objects, and facilitate meaningful course design. We support the design, development, and evaluation of online, face-to-face, and blended instruction.


UMKC’s Faculty and Course Certification policies require online courses to meet nationally-mandated accessibility standards. Learn more about the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and resources available to you.
