Creighton University
Distance Teaching Best Practice Standards

Federal guidelines and institutional accrediting policies (Higher Learning Commission) require institutional reporting on the use of online teaching best practice standards.  The following standards serve as a basis for effective online teaching practices at Creighton University. These standards were selected as they are unique to the context of the online teaching and learning environment and are a recognized online teaching best practice. Resources to assist in development of these standards are available in the Faculty Resources section of the Center for Academic Innovation web site ( including the CU Online Guide (pdf).
