Blackboard Exemplary Course Program Award

The Blackboard Exemplary Course Program began in 2000 with the goal of identifying and disseminating best practices for designing engaging online courses. The Exemplary Course Award recognizes faculty and course designers around the world who develop exciting and innovative courses that represent the very best in technology and learning. Courses are evaluated in four major areas (Course Design, Interaction & Collaboration, Assessment and Learner Support) by a peer group of Blackboard clients, a Reviewer Council, and Directors.

Benefits of Participating:

  • Reflect on your own course design through a self-evaluation of your course and gain new perspective and insights on your course.
  • Receive detailed feedback on your own course development including best practices and areas for improvement.
  • Apply lessons learned from the Exemplary Course Rubric to your own courses or those you are helping to develop.
  • Gain professional development experience and recognition for your accomplishments and participation in the program.
