Welcome to the Exemplary Course Program Cohort Registration!

Please select and register for all five weeks of this cohort.



Learner Support addresses the support resources made available to students taking the course. Such resources address a variety of student services, and may be accessible within or external to the course environment. Join us as our speakers walk you through the ECP Rubric's exemplary characteristics of Learner Support. We'll show you how to build exemplary course design pieces in a live environment - Educator Preview - which is Blackboard Learn with the Ultra experience. And, one of our 2017 ECP winners will give you a tour of her winning course within a Learn Original environment.


This session will cover Learner Support characteristics within the sub-categories:  

  • Orientation to Course and LMS
  • Supportive Technologies
  • Instructor Role and Information
  • Course/Institutional Policies
  • Technical Accessibility Issues
  • Accommodations for Disabilities
  • Feedback
