"Boston University has been in the business of providing high-quality education online for the past decade. In service of that goal, our team strives constantly to achieve the highest standards of academic excellence and rigor for each degree or certificate program we create and maintain. The Blackboard Exemplary Course Program is perfectly aligned with our mission. The benchmarks set by the rubrics are both impressively high and academically sound. Participating in the program enables our team to measure our work against those excellent rubrics, encouraging constant enhancement and refinement. The opportunity for peer recognition is also a terrific benefit. We are very happy to be part of such a valuable program."

Discussions are focused on how the course content can influence classroom curriculum and instruction. Students conduct library research to find related articles on a topic relative to the course content. Assignments are written, visual and digital. Students enjoy a rich and multi-faceted online experience that includes audio, video, imagery, interactive media, and class discussion.
