Course Build Stipend
Get the training you need to accommodate students who may self-quarantine or be mandated to quarantine by making arrangements now for course assignments to be completed remotely. Relatedly, should a faculty member themselves become quarantined, the faculty member should be prepared to teach their course remotely through their quarantine period.
Academic Continuity Course Build (ACCB) is a process for creating temporary remote courses to facilitate the continuation of instruction during the COVID-19 disruption to face-to-face instructional delivery. Unlike the development of a fully online course, ACCB provides basics-only faculty assistance for assuring that students will have the tools and information they need to be successful in their online courses. A $250 stipend will be paid based on meeting the ACCB quality review standards.
This process includes:
- assistance with WebEx, Mediasite, or other live or recorded video content
- a Canvas course template
- an ADA compliant syllabus template
- a teacher/student communication plan
- assistance with gradebook and calendar tool
- student-centered course objectives
- information about university policies, student accessibility services, student support resources, and technical support.
