The DePaul Online Teaching Series (DOTS) provides instructors with activities and training for developing hybrid or online courses. Through hands-on experience, instructors are introduced to best practices and technologies for developing online instructional materials. After thirty-six hours of instruction, participants of DOTS training are prepared to deliver a hybrid or online course that meets DOTS’s standards.
