Online Course Development Process

Online Course Development

The purpose of the Online Course Development process is to support faculty in their efforts to ensure student success in online courses offered at LLCC. This process will also provide an organized method by which the college can manage online course development and delivery.

This process applies to all LLCC faculty members (Full-time and Adjunct) seeking approval for the development and delivery of an online course.



Online Course Development Proposal
Online course development proposals may be submitted in response to a college initiated request for proposal or may be a faculty generated proposal.


College Generated Request for Proposal
The Associate Dean, Instructional Technology and Distance Education will release an in-house RFP for online courses that the college would like to have added to the online course offerings. Faculty members wishing to respond to an in-house RFP for online course development will need to complete the RFP online course development proposal form included with the RFP memo and submit the completed form to the appropriate Dean.


Faculty Generated Proposal
Faculty members wishing to develop an online course that is not included in a college generated RFP should fill out an Online Course Development form and submit the completed form to the appropriate Dean.

  • Online Course Development Proposal Approval
  • Once an online course development proposal has been submitted to the appropriate Dean/Associate Dean the Dean/Associate Dean and the Associate Dean of Instructional Technology and Distance Education will review the proposal. Approvals will be based on:

  • The college's current online offerings

  • Strategic Priorities of the colleges

  • Resources available


  • Online Course Development Project Plan
    Faculty members who have had their online course development proposals approved must schedule a meeting with the Associate Dean of Instructional Technology and Distance Education prior to the start of the online course development. At this meeting an Online Course Development Project Plan will be developed based on the following criteria:

  • Professional development needs of the faculty member will be determined and appropriate training will be scheduled. (see Online Faculty Preparation and Development section)

  • Design and development process for the course will be established.

  • Support personnel will be selected based on technical needs of the course design.

  • Development timeline and projected semester for first offering will be agreed upon.

  • The Online Course Development Project Plan will be distributed to the appropriate Dean by the Associate Dean of Instructional Technology and Distance Education.


  • Online Course Development
  • Development of an approved online course may begin upon the completion of the Online Course Development Project Plan.

  • The online course will be developed based on the Online Course Development Project Plan.

  • After development has completed a beta version of the completed course will be reviewed and tested using the LLCC QOCI Rubic.

  • Once recommended revisions are made the course may be put into production.



  • Online Instructor Preparation and Development

    Instructor preparation and development in the area of online teaching will be provided by the LLCC Instructional Technology and Distance Education department based on the agreement in the LLCC Faculty 2009 – 2012 Collective Bargaining Agreement, Section 8.10 Online Instruction, item c. - Training for Online Instruction.

    New Online Faculty: Faculty new to online instruction must complete all three stages of preparation described below, before teaching online.



    1) Training regarding online pedagogy
    Preparation on the subject of online pedagogy will be provided through an instructor-led four week workshop delivered entirely online. Course participants will actively engage in online lectures, activities, and discussions related to online teaching and learning.

    Workshop Goals:
  • Provide participants with an opportunity to become familiar with the online learning environment from a student’s perspective.
  • Present participants with general information regarding the roles and responsibilities of an online instructor.
  • Introduce participants to online course design, development, and assessment methods.
  • Instruct participants on how to implement instructional strategies used to promote communication and collaboration in the online classroom.

  • Upon successful completion of this 4-week online workshop, participants will be paid a lump-sum stipend equivalent to one contact hour at the overload rate.


    2) Introductory and intermediate training on the Learning Management System
    Training on the use of the college’s learning management system for online course development and instruction will be provided through a combination of lab based hands-on workshops and online activities. This hybrid format will provide faculty with an opportunity to learn the introductory and intermediate functions of the learning management system at a basic technical level and to practice and apply what they learn in the online learning format.

    Introductory Workshops
  • Getting Started
  • Presenting Content
  • Communicating with Students

  • Intermediate Workshops
  • Using the Discussion Board
  • Building surveys, quizzes, and exams
  • Using the Grade Center and Course Maintenance

  • Upon successful completion of all stages of both introductory and intermediate learning management system training, participants will be paid a lump-sum stipend equivalent to one contact hour at the overload rate.


    3) Self-assessment and course development
    Preparation on the subject of online pedagogy will be provided through an instructor-led four week workshop delivered entirely online. Course participants will actively engage in online lectures, activities, and discussions related to online teaching and learning.

    Self-Assessment Series
    The self-assessment workshop series will provide participants with an opportunity to learn basic online course instructional design principles and procedures. Instruction will also be provided on how to apply those principles and procedures toward the course development process. In the final stage of the self-assessment series, participants will receive instruction on the process and methods used to evaluate and review an online course prior to instruction.

    Course Development Series
    The course development series will provide instruction on technology tools used to develop and deliver online courses. The series will also introduce participants to additional development technologies based on individual course needs and design plans.

    Upon successful completion of all stages of both the self-assessment series and the course development series, participants will be paid a lump-sum stipend equivalent to one contact hour at the overload rate.


    Current Online Faculty
    In order to maintain online proficiency, faculty members may elect to participate in an ITDE training program that is designed to incorporate developments in instructional technology.

    Online Proficiency Program
    The online proficiency program will consist of workshops, seminars, and training sessions designed to provide existing online faculty with opportunities to update current online teaching skills, technical and pedagogical, as well as gain new knowledge on subjects about and related to online learning. These offerings will be provided through a variety of delivery methods.

    ITDE offerings that will be a component of the Online Proficiency Program will be clearly marked as such in the ITDE workshop/training schedules offered to the college. Offerings in the Online Proficiency Program will be designated point values based on the content and outcomes of each session or series. Point value for each offering will also be included in the ITDE workshop/training schedule.


    Upon successful completion of 16 Points in the Online Proficiency Program, participants will be paid a lump-sum stipend equivalent to one contact hour at the overload rate.
