What is Camp Operation Online Learning?

We know what it’s like to experience the unique, often stressful necessity of designing a course while also teaching it (we call this the "week-ahead of our students" plan). If you know what courses are on your schedule for fall, why wait? Be COOL this summer and avoid the stress with colleagues from around the world!

Camp Operation Online Learning (COOL) is a six-week summer course design group that will guide you through the process of developing your online courses for fall. Led by dynamic facilitators who are experts in online learning, COOL is dedicated to making the course design process accessible and enjoyable for higher educators at every level of experience and technology fluency.


Throughout this experience, we will focus on simplifying your online course design by introducing you to easy-to-master methods and sustainable processes​. COOL facilitators will guide you through the process of designing and building your course from syllabus to final course assessment. You will learn how to design accessible and engaging online learning experiences and create original instructional materials using affordable, reliable, and user-friendly tools.

Join us for weekly, interactive presentations and discussions. Together, we’ll learn about course design, accessibility, assessment, and how to build spirited and engaged online learning communities. We’ll also help you build upon your teaching strengths and existing pedagogical skills so you teach your course the way you know you can. Camp Operation Online Learning leverages the power of facilitated peer review to keep you on task and on time in a fun and supportive community of practice. 

This course includes content on asynchronous online course design and teaching and synchronous-remote session planning and facilitation.
