Stipend Approval Guidelines for Online Course Redevelopment

Overview:
Once a stipend has been paid for online course development it is the responsibility of the academic department to ensure that the course is kept current. Normally, there is no stipend paid when a course is revised; however, special circumstances could warrant a redevelopment stipend.

Stipend Process:
Anyone requesting a stipend for redevelopment must submit an Online Course Development Nomination Form. The CEL Dean decides if a course is eligible for redevelopment funding. If approved for a redevelopment stipend the course must pass a beta tested for best practices and the content must be approved by the department chair (or a department designee) before the stipend is released. Course redevelopment is funded at Level 1 or 2 depending on the extent of revisions. Levels and stipend amounts are listed as part of the Online Course Development Nomination Form.
