The Distance Education Curriculum Subcommittee works with you to ensure that distance ed courses meet all Title 5 Distance Education requirements as well as provide the same learning outcomes with the traditional face-to-face course. For assistance with DE course development, contact Jory Hadsell, Distance Education Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As you may already know, developing a new class of any kind requires a period where you "think out" how you are going to organize the course components. And since you may be using new technology for the first time there will also be a certain learning curve associated with becoming familiar with how to use the technology tools. This is central to course development, because you have to know what functions you can use and in what manner. Learning to work in an electronic classroom and office is important.
