Peer Online Course Review Banner


The  CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric contains the online course design standards developed and adopted by the CVC-OEI. The Rubric is intended to establish standards relating to course design, interaction and collaboration, assessment, learner support, and accessibility in order to ensure the provision of a high-quality learning environment that promotes student success and conforms to existing regulations.

In the development of these standards, the CVC-OEI team was fortunate to have access to significant work already undertaken in this area by @ONE, the CCC Distance Education Coordinator’s group, the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC), and the CCC Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) along with a variety of other local college and nationally established standards.
