E-Learning Educational Research

We've created a Generic IRB Form for Educational Research document to help e-learning developers complete the UNMC IRB online application specific to exempt e-learning educational research. It provides IRB-approved language and selections, which may be utilized or modified to complete a new online IRB Protocol. 

Additionally, we recommend e-learning developers consult with Education Researchers from the Interprofessional Academy of Educators. Contact Dr. Beth Beam or Dr. Michelle Howell Smith for consultations.
