The Distance Learning Center (DLC) at Kennesaw State University was established as a centralized information and support center for colleges, programs and faculty. Technological support, instructional design, and access to campus wide resources in training and development are readily available. Focus is placed on collegiality, recognition of the faculty as subject matter experts, and the underlying philosophy that faculty members need not be technologists. Distance learning innovation, best practices, and a focus on 21st century learning are part of our growth and quality objectives.
The Distance Learning Center offers a variety of services to support departments and faculty in meeting their online program initiatives. Quality - Affordable - Accredited. We are putting non-profit back into online learning. Please contact us to learn more about how we can assist you.
Instructional Designers are available to work one-on-one with faculty on course conceptualization, preparing for the online course review process, adding technology enhanced instruction or creating innovative instructional materials. We specialize in engaging online content.

Assistance is available to research, select and implement media rich content and gain access to technology training and support. The instructional design team can provide technology documentation, training, and one-on-one support while partnering with units across campus to leverage all that KSU has to offer.
Kennesaw State University relies on an internal peer-review process to implement Quality Matters (QM) standards in online courses. The Distance Learning Center will guide you through the process of online teaching certification, course design to meet national QM standards, and submitting a course for peer-review.
I think the support from the Distance Learning Center and others across campus is great. I never thought I would do this but it was a great experience that has helped me think about my face to face course too.
This was a worthwhile experience to me as an instructor, a faculty member and an educational leader. I am so glad that I signed up for this experience - it was wonderful.
