Course Design Rubric

In May 2019, the Academic Senate endorsed adoption of the OEI Online Course Design Rubric.  This rubric replaces the Best Practices Checklist developed by the Online Teaching and Learning Committee based on early versions of the OEI Rubric.


The OEI Online Course Design Rubric may be used by online teachers as a tool to review their own online courses.  The rubric is also used in the Peer Online Course Review (POCR) process.


The OEI Course Design Rubric was developed by the OEI Professional Development work group to ensure that all courses offered as part of the Initiative promote student success and meet existing regulatory and accreditation requirements.


Courses that are peer reviewed and aligned to the OEI Course Design Rubric:

The Rubric is divided into four sections.

  1. Content Presentation - how content is organized and accessed in the course management system.
  2. Interaction - regular effective contact (instructor-initiated and student-initiated communication).
  3. Assessment - the variety and effectiveness of assessments within the course.
  4. Accessibility - ensuring a student using assistive technologies will be able to access the instructor’s course content as required by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (also known as “508 Compliance”).
