Online College Project

ONLINE COLLEGE PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Online College Project provides incentives to encourage both full-time and part-time faculty to develop new online courses, not previously taught online. Courses can be based on new or existing curriculum. In order to best serve the needs of students, priority consideration is given to:

  • Science, Math, General Education, and CTE
  • Courses with high enrollment demand
  • Courses that are part of an existing or proposed online major or certificate (these are programs that have 50% or more of their courses online)

HOW TO APPLY

To be accepted into the Online College Project, please submit an application/agreement (Word doc) signed by your Department Chair and Dean to the Office of Learning Resources and Educational Technology for final acceptance.

Please read the agreement thoroughly for an overview of all requirements.

Once approved, you will be contacted by our friendly Instructional Designer to begin.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

  • Courses will be developed in the Canvas course management system. The development process will include the use of the state’s new rubric for online courses and several meetings with our Instructional Designer.
  • Since the District is specifically commissioning the work, the faculty member and the District will have joint ownership of the course.
  • If the course has not already been approved for online delivery by the Curriculum Committee, the faculty member must complete and submit a DE proposal and ensure it gets approved. For information and assistance with completing and submitting your DE proposal, contact Chas Crocker in the Curriculum Office.

FACULTY INCENTIVE

The Online College Project offers faculty compensation for courses of 3 units or more, faculty will be compensated $2,000 gross for completing all Online College Project requirements.
