Online Course Development


A stipend is available for course development. To receive the stipend, new instructors should complete the online course design process, including department head approval:

The CAS Online Development Course is required for new online instructors. This course is designed to inform CAS instructors of the high-quality standards CAS has for its online courses, and provide tips and strategies to prepare and deliver a CAS online course offering. No previous online experience required. The course is self-paced and will take approximately 10-15 hours to complete.
Faculty do not need to complete the CAS Online Development Course more than once. Instead, schedule a meeting with Dr. Barnes to discuss a new course offering to meet the requirements for the online course development stipend. 

The stipend is $1000/credit hour to a maximum of $3,000 (one-half paid at the end of the first semester the course is offered and the remainder after the third offering).
