The D2L Brightspace Course Design Guidelines are based upon the Open SUNY Course Quality Review (OSCQR) guidelines.  Some changes were made to fit the terminology used at our institution.

The guidelines cover:

  • Overview and Information
  • Technology and Tools
  • Design and Layout
  • Content and Activities
  • Interaction
  • Assessment and Feedback

Please visit the OSCQR site to view videos regarding each standard.
