Online in 9


Take your online course to the next level by participating in a 9-week series designed to help you efficiently develop or redesign your course. By the end of the series, you will have a completely finished course site, confidence with new technologies and strategies for managing your time and students. Join your colleagues in an interdisciplinary small group to share ideas and learn new tools and strategies guided by research-based, national standards.


Online in 9

Online in 9 is offered each fall, spring, and summer semester. When you register, you will select your desired semester and a weekday-based cohort group that works best with your schedule. If you select the standard cohort, most meetings will be in-person in the CTL Conference Room - Lucas Hall 589. We also offer a web-based version of the Online in 9 program that is asynchronous, intensive. There will be no required in-person meetings but completing online activities will be required in place of a face-to-face session. Space in this program is limited to courses that contribute to UMSL NOW.
