EOE Success Stories


Hear from your faculty colleagues who have already gone through the process! As of Spring 2021, over 11 faculty have completed the formal review and received their Digital Badge of Eagle Online Excellence. These online course design experts come from CAS, KSB, SPA, SOE, and SIS.

Thanks again for what was a very worthwhile learning experience for me, not just in building out the Blackboard site, but also in re-thinking various parts of my courses that I’m confident will make them all the better for the effort.

The Eagle Online Excellence program was a great way for me to get outside feedback on how well my course aligned with best practices for online teaching. Working through the rubric and then discussing potential improvements with [the EOE Team] was very helpful. Now I am even more confident that I am providing my students with the best possible online learning experience!

Using the EOE course design principles and rubric help me to streamline my course. Students stay focused on the skills I want them to take away from the course.

As of January 2021, the EOE Team is proud to announce that all course sections of the AU CORE’s AUx (American University Experience) program have been certified through EOE. All first-year students at AU are now enrolled in a course that meets EOE standards for high-quality online education, setting the stage for student success at AU.
