The Missouri S&T Provost’s eFellows Program provides funding to improve the learning environment while maximizing the physical learning facilities available for instruction. Support is provided by the educational technology team to develop courses using best practices for eLearning. Projects will be piloted in at least one course section by the 2019 fall semester, and expanded to additional course sections in the following semesters.
