Stipend and Assistance for Fall, Summer, and Spring remote courses

Academic Continuity Course Build (ACCB) is a process for creating temporary remote courses to facilitate the continuation of instruction during the COVID-19 disruption to face-to-face instructional delivery. Unlike the development of a fully online course, ACCB provides basics-only faculty assistance for assuring that students will have the tools and information they need to be successful in their fall and summer online courses.

The ACCB process involves one-on-one faculty/instructional designer meetings to build a student-ready course for remote online instruction. In general, 1-3 hours will be the average instructor time commitment. Times will vary based on the complexity of the course. This process includes:

  • assistance with Webex, Mediasite, or other live or recorded video content
  • a Canvas course template
  • an ADA compliant syllabus template
  • a teacher/student communication plan
  • assistance with gradebook and calendar tool
  • student-centered course objectives
  • information about university policies, student accessibility services, student support resources, and technical support.

A $250 stipend will be paid based on meeting the ACCB quality review standards. (Based on Quality Matters course review standards.) There is no expectation of on-going online course delivery associated with ACCB faculty assistance. All course materials remain the property of the faculty member.
