We are the St. Cloud State University Online Team (SCSU Online). We are made up of a group of wonderful people with backgrounds in education and education administration, online teaching and learning, and learning management systems. Our team supports the college globally by providing faculty development opportunities, in the form of Learning Lab demonstrations, Pedagogy and Practice webinars, a website, a podcast, and now, a blog. Locally, we support faculty through assistance with course design, D2L support, the introduction of new technology, and other online-related activities.


Our goal is to provide faculty with the resources, support and tools to design and deliver quality online education. Through engaging faculty development workshops, one-on-one course design consultations with our team of instructional designers and innovative educational technology demonstrations, we bring this vision to life.


The Office of Online & Distance Learning collaborates with partners on campus and off campus to introduce faculty to innovative educational technologies, improve the online learning experience and offer valuable opportunities for faculty development.
