Wall of COOL (Celebrating Outstanding Opportunities for Learning) is a resource celebrating exemplar course design and development by Cal Poly Pomona faculty for student success using technology.

The Wall of COOL is an eLearning award which recognizes excellent courses that effectively use technology to enhance student learning and success. Courses of any format – online, hybrid, or technology-enhanced face-to-face – are eligible. Any faculty member or faculty team from any college, department, or unit is eligible to submit a course for the Wall of COOL.

The Wall of COOL itself is a super-cool website which showcases the courses selected every year. eLearning’s multimedia developers, instructional designers, and student assistants work with the selected faculty to create the Wall of COOL annually.
