The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is a polytechnic university located in Newark, NJ.  The university offers undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs in the sciences, engineering, technology, and business management.

Designing courses is a collaborative effort between the instructional designer (ID) and the faculty member. Use of the Universal Design Template and the QA in eLearning Rubric is facilitated by the ID during the design process to ensure that the final iteration of the course meets design standards before publication in the LMS.
