The team that assists faculty from The University of Texas at El Paso to develop online courses has settled into its new home in UTEP’s Extended University and looks forward to assisting more professors to catch the digital wave. UTEP’s Center for Instructional Design (CID) guides and supports UTEP instructors in the creation and enhancement of online courses. This unit has served the campus under different titles for about 20 years. The center made the switch during the fall 2016 semester from Academic Technologies, where it functioned as the Online Learning unit, after it was decided the mission was a better fit under Extended University, which directs UTEP Connect, the University’s suite of fully online degree plans. UTEP Connect launched in May 2015 with a handful of online programs. Today, it has 14 online undergraduate and graduate degree plans that serve about 900 students from 10 countries and 47 states. More courses are being developed every semester.
