After a wonderful break, it's time to look toward the Spring. Join us at ReCharge 2021 to focus on some of the elements for your online, hybrid, and web-enhanced courses! The Office of Distance Education and eLearning's (DEeL) ReCharge virtual conference is meant for those who wish to explore or revisit the foundational concepts of planning, course technology, assessment, and social presence as they relate to online and hybrid courses.
