CSU Center of Online Learning Publishes Book Chapter

Amy Thornton, director for the Center of Online Learning, and Japheth Koech, e-learning specialist at the Center of Online Learning were recently published. Their book chapter, “Building an e-Learning Center from Ground-Up: The Challenges and Lessons Learned” was included in the “Educational Communications and Technology: Issues and Innovations” book series.

“We wrote this book chapter to highlight our lessons learned in establishing a new e-learning center as well as to offer a practical guide to assist other leaders in the field when looking to set up their own center to support e-learning,” said authors Thornton and Koech.

The Center of Online Learning (COOL) at CSU provides support for the design and development of online courses and programs. Staff are available to assist instructors with instructional design, course development, e-learning tools and applications, training, proctoring and course accessibility. Space is available for reservation including a recording room, training lab and rooms with SMART board and web conference technology.
