Inspiring Excellence and Innovation in Teaching and Learning

Welcome to the virtual home of the Learning Design Group, a CU Boulder resource for remote and online learning.


The Learning Design Group (LDG) is collaborating with the Center for Teaching & Learning, the Office of Information Technology (OIT), and the Provost’s Office for Academic Innovation (OAI) to support faculty in teaching remotely. The LDG team will provide faculty with:

  • Step-by-step instructions, access to supporting resources and assistance to help design a course for remote delivery;
  • Personal, hands-on consultations for designing and teaching a remote course using Canvas and other tools; and
  • Trainings and tutorials on using Canvas’s features/tools effectively.

Visit Remote 2020 for assistance with developing and teaching remote courses. The LDG team will also continue its usual comprehensive support for Continuing Education.
