Online Instructor - UC Berkeley

Berkeley's Resource Center for Online Education (BRCOE) program provides production support for many of Berkeley's online education programs.  These online programs feature professional certificates, specialized programs of study, and more than 150 courses in a wide range of subjects that are approved by the University of California, Berkeley, and offered for college credit. The program offers both fixed date and self-pace courses. 

The BRCOE department develops and supports courses for programs both within University Extension and for the larger campus community.  Presently, our clients include Extension academic departments, UC Summer Sessions, and the School of Public Health. 

When developing courses and programs, we work with administration, faculty and instructors to design, move through the campus approval process and eventually craft the course for online distribution. We guide the instructors through the creation process, produce the materials, and host the classroom. 

Additionally, we offer full support services to our students, orienting them to the online learning environment, assisting them in meeting their course requirements and helping them find the services they need both at the university and beyond.  We support a wide variety of students ranging from undergraduates to graduates, from post-graduates preparing for new careers to seasoned professional seeking additional continuing education credits.
