The COVID-19 pandemic forced KSU instructors to emergency remote/distance education
in spring and summer semesters. As we continue instruction into the 2020-2021 academic
year, a growing list of KSU-developed resources is now available to help instructors
plan and facilitate research-based online instruction within our current challenges.
The following list of resources is categorized by function, including: (1) resources
for online course design and implementation, (2) resources for adjusting online instruction
due to health pandemic, (3) resources for adjusting online instruction due to reignited
push for racial justice, and (4) research-based, accessible resources about online
More recent lists of technological resources can be found at KSU’s CETL, Bagwell College of Education Tech Sessions, Digital Learning Innovations, or University Information and Technology Services (UITS) websites.
1. Resources for Online Course Design
If you are looking for the basics of online course design, this list is the best place

2. Resources for Adjusting Online Instruction in Response to Current Climate
In person and online classroom environments are constantly changing in response to
outside events. This section provides important resources for adjusting online instruction
3. Research-Based Resources for Online Teaching
Interested in understanding more research-based practices for online instruction,
teaching during a crisis, or navigating social and racial justice? This list of resources
is accessible to all KSU students, staff, and faculty by logging into KSU’s library
4. Online Teaching Resource Video Directory
This collection of videos consists of interviews with KSU faculty about their use
of a variety of research-based, best practices for online teaching on a range of topics.
Each video is just a few minutes long and provides 'on-the-ground' insights about
how to implement these best practices.
