Online Course Development Timeline

The development of a single online course typically takes six months to a year. Below are some factors that influence development timelines:

  • Whether or not the course already exists in a face-to-face or blended format.
  • Faculty’s familiarity with the learning management system and prior experience developing online courses.
  • Faculty course load and availability to develop the course.
  • Availability of teaching assistants to support implementation and quality assurance.
