Overview

Developed by Academic Partnerships, Faculty eCommons is a social learning ecosystem for faculty across the world to work together to improve online education.  The site offers industry research, guidance, best practices, and professional development, with a focus on national quality standards.

Our goal is to offer a set of resources that expands your knowledge about online learning as well as gives you the pedagogy and tools to apply to your courses.
