Course Development Process

New courses are constantly being developed and old courses are constantly being revised. The basic steps in the course development process are as follows:

The instructor requests and receives course approval from his/her department chair and the Coordinator of iStudy (CIS).

The instructor, CIS, and Instructional Designer (ID) meet to go over the basics of iStudy and the details of the course development process.

The instructor submits the course introductory material and the first lesson to the ID.

The instructor, and ID meet to discuss the items submitted. They then collaborate until the course is ready to go live.
