The Toolkits are a collection of digital teaching resources that are centered on a set of student learning outcomes. These outcomes are listed in each Toolkit and expand into several sub-outcomes or learning objectives. Contained within the outcome/objective framework are examples of instructional approaches, assessment strategies, and resources (both objective- and course-specific). Their purpose is to provide instructors guidance in their course design, augmentation, or redesign.
There are a total of 26 courses supported through the The Connected College grant. Of these 26 courses, 23 of them have Toolkits available. The exception are the developmental math courses (MTH 011, 021 & 031), which have been redesigned using the Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) model, and are housed within the MyMathLab system.*

In order to keep the materials visible to only our faculty, most of the Toolkits are housed within our Learning Management System. Faculty members can access theses by logging on to the BCC Angel site, going to one of their course spaces, and clicking on the Toolkits tab in their course space.
