Instructional Design Support

Our Mission

Created in June of 2006 to provide technical support to online course instructors, Webcourses@UCF Support has since expanded to include online student support services and course development support for certified instructors. This combined unit provides technical support for all UCF faculty, staff, and students who use online components supported by the Center for Distributed Learning.

How We Do It

Webcourses@UCF Support can access courses to resolve technical issues with approval from the instructor. Unless the instructor submits a work request, we do not access courses to change content. Normally, we do not need to add ourselves to the course, but due to limitations in the support role that we use, it is sometimes unavoidable. Webcourses@UCF Support employees are unable to add themselves to a course in which they are enrolled as a student. It is our standard policy that our technical support staff unenroll themselves after a request is completed.



Materia is designed to supplement traditional web courses with a form of interactive media that we call widgets.


Obojobo is a learning object system designed, crafted, and maintained by the University of Central Florida.


Panopto is a video lecture capture technology used in some UCF courses.


Respondus is a software application used to create and manage quizzes, self-tests, and surveys that can be published directly into Webcourses@UCF.
