Abstract

This paper describes a comprehensive design and development project for online courses and programs that represented a new approach to our University’s efforts in support of online education. A rapid development model featuring prototyping was employed to organize the design and development of 46 courses taught by 34 different faculty members over the course of a 12-week project schedule. Results indicate a number of unanticipated outcomes related to faculty resistance, project funding, and the need for roles clarification.
