Western Online

Western Online allows instructors to deliver content to students online. It can be used for fully online courses, hybrid courses (partially online, partially face-to-face), or it can be used simply to supplement a fully face-to-face course. Using this system, instructors can create online discussions, assessments, assignments, post grades, embed video, record audio and much more. Western Online uses a course management software system called Desire2Learn (D2L).

CITR provides workshops, webinars, video tutorials, and answers to popular topics to assist instructors with the implementation and continued improvement of their online courses.
