This website and community was designed for those who are responsible for faculty development or who prepare faculty to teach online or hybrid courses, according to the State University System Board of Governors 2025 Strategic Plan for Online Education Tactic 1.2.3.

You will also be challenged to dive right into participating in TOPkit, after walking the plank, by:

  • Completing the decision guide,

  • Registering on the website,

  • Subscribing to the Digest, or

  • Posting to the community.
