Online Course Development Cycles

Time is a critical success factor that departments and the faculty need to consider when scheduling online courses.  You'll need to devote 120 hours to plan, design, and develop your online course. To ensure course quality and optimal communication for advance registration, begin the course development process well in advance of the semester in which your course(s) will be offered.
