Digital Learning at UT Tyler

Office of Digital Learning

The University of Texas at Tyler

The Office of Digital Learning partners with colleges and departments across the campuses and both internal and external stakeholders to advance the mission of the University and improve learning outcomes in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education. Our team serves courses delivered in online, hybrid, and face-to-face modalities and consists of two major areas of focus: Learning Systems Support and Instructional Design. The Learning Systems Support team includes our LMS administrator, learning technologies analyst, and two support specialists who work alongside faculty and staff to support the learning, collaboration, and academic integrity platforms used across the university. The Instructional Design team includes an Instructional Designer who focuses on designing engaging learning experiences across modalities and an Instructional Design Associate who focuses on course design and user experience across digital learning platforms. Once again this year, all Digital Learning staff were certified in the nationally recognized and research-based Quality Matters Higher Education Course Design Rubric.
