Learning Management Systems (LMS) are environments in which you can prepare and deliver course materials and resources, communicate, and collaborate with your students. The University of Delaware officially supports one learning management system: Canvas. Canvas can be used to augment face-to-face courses, facilitate blended learning, and host fully online courses/programs.

Delivering Learning Experiences Online (DLEO)

Delivering Learning Experiences Online (DLEO) is an online course designed to assist faculty and teaching assistants who are transitioning to teaching online. This course is an opportunity to fully participate as a student in an online course while also learning about best practices in teaching online. The activities and assignments in the course will help participants develop their own online course.

Offered since 2014, this course is based in Canvas@UD and is appropriate for teaching fully online and for teaching face-to-face with online components. Skills acquired in this course can be applied to campus-based, classroom courses. The course is facilitated by instructional designers from Academic Technology Services.

  • DLEO is tailored to those teaching online during the coronavirus pandemic. Sections focus on online design essentials while preserving optional individual activities, peer interactions, and coaching elements that previous DLEO participants have appreciated the most.
  • Participants are encouraged to attend weekly cohort sessions in Zoom, although the course can be completed entirely self-directed with accompanying consultations available.

  • Visit the DLEO site to register for upcoming sessions and learn more about the program.



    • We offer workshops and personal consultations to help faculty learn how to use Canvas, to set up a basic Canvas course, or to master advanced Canvas topics such as grading, collaboration, and UD CaptureSpace.
