Recent events and current trends have meant a shift in the mode of delivery for many courses, which has inevitably involved the use of a learning management system. Many instructors have felt ill equipped for these changes. The presentation gives an overview of the course “An Introduction to Academic English” which was awarded a Blackboard Exemplary Course Program award 2022. The award program has been running for more than two decades and has evaluated thousands of courses from academic institutions all over the world. Courses are evaluated against a 62-point rubric which focuses on best practices in four main areas: course design; interaction and collaboration; assessment; and learner support. The course designer also focused on designing a course which could be easily adapted for a blended or asynchronous mode of delivery, and for delivery to larger cohorts: for this reason, careful consideration was also given to course management. The presentation demonstrates these aspects of course design by giving practical examples which participants will be able to replicate in their own courses.
