Develop a Course Online

Working with Us

Digital Learning offers two development cycles per year in the fall and spring semesters. Each cycle runs concurrent with the academic calendar and are kicked-off in advance to allow as much development time as possible. Two-semester development cycles are recommended for new online courses or courses needing significant multimedia support. Two-semester development cycles are offered in spring-summer or summer-fall.

If you would like to propose an online course for development, please contact your college leadership. Associate Deans manage the online strategy for each college in coordination with department chairs and Innovative Education.
