What is eLearning?

Teaching and learning in the digital age involves the thoughtful integration of technology and pedagogy. The term eLearning describes the use of electronic media and technology in instruction. This is not a new term; faculty at CSUN have been using technology in their instruction since the “Digital-Ten” first started teaching online in the late 1990s. These early pioneers led the way for the current wave of innovations, using tools and technologies that helped streamline the process.

Support and Training: The Faculty Technology Center provides workshops and specialized training sessions in course redesign to support faculty in their eLearning projects. Learn more about eLearning Support and Training options.

Learning Technologies: Faculty can use a variety of tools to create technology-supported learning opportunities for their students. The Learning Technologies guide outlines the tools, which are available at no charge or at a reduced rate.

Quality Learning and Teaching: The Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT) Rubric can assist faculty in the design and delivery of online, hybrid or technology-enhanced courses. It provides good practice and guidance for course redesign, and the full instrument can help faculty evaluate the effectiveness of courses both during and after delivery.
