Online Course Development and Design

Purdue Extended Campus (PEC) invites proposals for the development of new online courses. Courses developed under this proposal must be offered in 2014.

The purpose of this initiative is to facilitate the design and implementation of new online sections of Purdue undergraduate courses, thereby expanding the accessibility of needed courses to Purdue West Lafayette students. PEC funds the transformation of face-to-face courses to an online format and provides the training and support necessary, and follows up with research and assessment on how the online environment supports student success. It is expected that courses developed under this initiative will be offered at least three times; PEC will support instructional costs.
