Course Planning

Developing online courses begins with careful planning and quality course design.

When you have an idea for a course, we can help you work through the conceptual and delivery details. We can help you effectively plan and prepare for the multi-step approval process to transform your course from a concept into an accessible option for online learning. As you plan your course structure and select the most appropriate delivery format, you may also work closely with an instructional designer to establish pedagogy goals, learning outcomes, build your syllabus and more.

Typically, it takes anywhere from 3-6 months to plan a course and develop content for online delivery. To teach a course online - either in a fully online, blended, or hybrid format – the course needs to be approved for distance education delivery per Policy ACAF 2.03. A list of courses approved for distance education delivery is available here.
