Instructional Technology Support Services

The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching offers a wide variety of workshops, trainings, and consultations for faculty and staff who teach courses online, in a hybrid format (a combined face-to-face and online course), or wish to enhance their face-to-face class with online tools, multi-media, and other forms of instructional technology.

CELT maintains a "Teaching with Technology" website where you can learn about researched best practices as well as  a listing of the experts and offices at the college who can help you incorporate technology into  your courses. The website is designed to be interactive with opportunities to add comments or questions to each page or suggest additional topics. The URL for the website is:

Instructors who teach an online or hybrid course at The College at Brockport for the first time participate in a “Nuts and Bolts of Online Teaching” workshop and at least three individual training sessions with the CELT Instructional Design Specialist. It is expected that instructors attend the workshop and the trainings during the semester prior to teaching the online or hybrid course for the first time. Handbook for Hybrid & Online Teaching

All online courses at The College at Brockport are managed through the Office of Special Sessions and Programs and are offered through the SUNY Learning Network. For more information please see the SLN Website.

Online courses provide students and faculty in an innovative way to learn or teach asynchronously (i.e., from anywhere at anytime) and our SLN courses are taught via ANGEL Learning Management System (LMS), which is used college-wide.

Hybrid courses are courses in which there is a significant blend of online instruction and face-to-face student instruction/interaction with faculty.This definition provides wide flexability in the amount of online and face-to-face instructional time to be provided in the hybrid course.

To assist faculty in designing a Hybrid/Blended course, training was developed by the Univeristy of Central Florida, American Association of State Colleges and Universities, and the Next Generation Learning Challenges. For access to the course materials, please visit Blendkit Course.

The approval form process is now electronic. Please use this link Online Course Approval Form to submit the approval form for an Online course.
