For more than 25 years, the Online Learning Team has used our expertise in pedagogy, instructional design, multimedia, video production, and technology to collaborate with faculty and staff across Penn to support the design, development, assessment, and refinement of online learning experiences and opportunities.

We currently support online learning initiatives in the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Liberal and Professional Studies, and Penn LPS Online.

Our current services include:

  • Learning design and pedagogical consultations
  • Multimedia and video production
  • Course technology support (Canvas, Panopto, Zoom, etc.)
  • 24/7 technical support for instructors and students

We have also designed and developed for-credit and non-credit courses for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students across the University. Some of these past opportunities include MOOCs, flipped classrooms, and Structured Active In-class Learning (SAIL) courses.
