Every year, the Blackboard Catalyst Awards program recognizes outstanding professionals who push the boundaries of their educational programs and technology in order to deliver innovative and effective learning experiences to students. The Exemplary Course Program, one of six award categories, recognizes online and blended courses that demonstrate best practices in four major areas:
- Course Design
- Interaction & Collaboration
- Learner Support
Submitted courses are reviewed by a peer group of Blackboard clients using a rubric. Participants have reported that the experience has improved their course design and made them stronger course designers.
