If you are a faculty member at Eastern University who has been approved to create an online course and who would like to work in collaboration with Chalk & Table, please contact Sherry Kull and she would be happy to discuss the process with you. 

We utilize the Quality Matters system to help you create a course that meets the high standards that we hold for all courses at Eastern University. 

We offer several free courses for Eastern University faculty to help prepare you to design a high quality online course and effectively teach online.
