This Mastering Online Teaching: Fundamentals of Design and Delivery (MOT Fundamentals) course is a four-week, online mini-course delivered through iCollege. It is primarily asynchronous with recommended synchronous webinars. MOT Fundamentals is facilitated by staff at the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Online Education. The goal of this course is to introduce the fundamentals of online course design and delivery to faculty who are new to teaching online. In the process, participants will construct a Welcome module (including a welcome video), at least one additional content module, an assessment to gather student feedback and detailed plans for incorporating an RSI activity.
All Georgia State University instructors are welcome to participate in MOT Fundamentals. The required weekly time commitment, on average, is 3 – 4 hours per week. However, this could vary widely depending on instructor experience with teaching and learning tools, participation in supplemental live webinars and the amount of sample course content developed for the final submission. Instructors who successfully complete MOT course assignments will receive a digital badge.

Mastering Online Teaching: Design for All picks up where Mastering Online Teaching: Fundamentals of Online Course Design and Delivery left off—it takes a closer look at how instructors can ensure their classes and materials meet accessibility requirements and are learner-centered for students with and without disabilities.
Design for All consists of mini-courses, each one-week-long and focusing on a different topic. The introduction, MOT: Course Accessibility, must be completed first before enrolling in others. Topics touched on include creating accessible content in iCollege, digital document design, video and media standards, inclusive teaching practices and disability’s impact on learning.
The courses are self-paced but moderated by CETLOE staff. A micro-badge is issued upon successful completion of each one.
