The Office of eLearning provides support, training, and instructional design services for faculty teaching online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced courses using the Brightspace (D2L), the University System of Georgia’s collaborative learning management system. This includes providing Coastal Georgia faculty and students with support for academic technologies such as Respondus, Blackboard Collaborate (web-conferencing), Turnitin, and other products.
In keeping with the College of Coastal Georgia’s mission and strategic plan, distance education is intended to expand student access to higher education by providing an affordable and accessible quality education. The College's Distance Education Policy serves as a guide for developing and implementing distance education and to effectively and efficiently communicate quality standards for the delivery and assessment of distance education.
eLearning staff also provides professional development and training opportunities to faculty, offers instructional design consultation, and reviews online and hybrid courses.
Coastal Georgia students may take different types of online courses. For example, a student may register for a Coastal Georgia Web course, an online course developed and taught by Coastal Georgia faculty. Additionally, students may take an online course through eCore.
