We are the Center for Global Online Learning and Development

As the central agent for online learning at UWF, we transform lives by making a high-quality UWF education available to anyone, anywhere, anytime through the innovative use of technology.

Faculty support that has been offered since 2003 by the Academic Technology Center has now been integrated into the Global Online initiative as the Center for Global Online Learning and Development (GOLD).

UWF graduates hundreds of students in fully online programs. We support the success of online students through our work with faculty  to ensure their online and blended courses reflect good practices in instructional design, accessibility, and innovations in instructional technologies.

eLearning Tool Spotlight


Panopto is a video platform housed in Canvas that enables faculty to record and manage video content, recorded lectures, flipped classroom videos, student assignments, and more. Panopto also supports interactive video quizzing. This enables faculty to create online assessments, embed them directly inside their videos, and test student comprehension while also increasing student engagement with content. In addition to recording videos, Panopto also provides an auto-captioning tool that assists faculty in meeting digital accessibility standards. Global Online provides Panopto training and promotes video and closed-captioning best practices.
