Faculty creating new online courses will complete the following steps:

  1. Submit an Online Course Development Form. This is a required form for all new online courses and provides transparency of course developments to college deans, program coordinators, department chairs, and faculty.
  2. Prepare for your initial course development consultation.  Your assigned instructional designer will send you an email to schedule a one-on-one consultation.
  3. Submit your Quality Checklist form.  You must receive a “met” on the checklist descriptions before students will be able to register for your course.
  4. Complete Greenbelt training, a self-paced course that guides in the creation of modules, assessments, activities, learning outcomes, and use of instructional technologies.
  5. Successfully met the standards of the Quality Review, a course review to evaluate the design of your online course.
