COVID-19 has forced educators to make rapid changes to their pedagogy in order to shift from face-to-face instruction to online delivery. In this time of rapid change, Kuo and Belland’s (Educ Technol Res Dev 64:661–680, 2016) exploratory study that highlights the types of interactions that correlated with African American students’ success in an undergraduate course could provide instructors with ideas about how to create more equitable online courses. Thus, this article describes how instructors might consider the cultural and racialized experiences of their students through an asset lens as they design online coursework. Specifically, instructors should attend to students’ experiences and determine how students will interact with the content, with the instructor, and with other learners. Implications are described.
