Center for Online Learning & Innovation

Welcome to the Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) Wiki. Here you will find self-paced training resources, links to our social media presence, upcoming events and opportunities offered by COLI, and information on working with our staff. 

Our goal is to help faculty, students, and staff use internet resources to reach the potential of their better selves academically and professionally.  We support face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses, as well as extra-curricular opportunities. 

The COLI Wiki is a supplement to our public web page
