Are your courses exemplary? What does it take to create an engaging, effective course? The Blackboard Exemplary Course Program (ECP), with its peer and expert review processes, can provide valuable insights. Learn more about the importance of quality in course design, the principles that are the pillars of the ECP rubric, and how the ECP and its rubric can be used for individual course improvement, faculty training and professional development.


Please visit our new Blackboard Community (community.blackboard.com) for additional resources and to join our ECP group.
