Reviews for New or Redesigned Online Courses

Internal Review Process: 1. UNM Online Approves the Course to be Scheduled  2. Connect with CDL Instructional Designer  3. Meet with designer to set expectations and timelines  4. Submit Course for Internal Review  5. Receive Feedback  5.Make any remaining changes to meet UNM Online Course Standards Rubric

If you have been approved by UNM Online to offer a new or redesigned online course, you will be assigned an instructional designer to work with you in the process. In your first meeting, you’ll want to work with your instructional designer to lay out a timeline to complete the course design.

Once the design of the course is complete, you’ll have an opportunity to have the course go through a review with the CDL team. The designer you have worked with and two other expert designers will carefully look at your course to ensure that you meet all the criteria in the “Accomplished” column of the UNM Online Course Standards Rubric. Your designer will share this feedback with you within five business days, and help you plan to meet any remaining requirements.

Spring 2021 Deadlines

If you have been approved to receive a stipend for your new or redesigned course taught in Spring 2021, you will need to have your course ready for the internal review by March 24. The CDL team will have your feedback within five business days. All requirements must be met and updates made to the course by the end of Spring 2021 to receive your stipend (May 7, 2021).
