Online Course Redesign (OCR)

The Online Course Redesign (OCR) provides funding and instructional support for faculty and instructional academic staff members interested in reconstructing a significant portion of a course currently offered online.  Applicants should clearly identify a significant teaching or student learning challenge that currently exists in a course and provide a detailed plan for redesigning the course to address the issue.  


Ten applications will be funded for the 2013-2014 academic year.  Participants will receive $750 per credit for the course being redesigned.  If required for the project, additional one-time funding (under $250) is available for equipment (microphone, digital camera, etc) or software (screen recording software, etc).  Funding is provided when the redesigned course is offered online.

The OCR is funded by revenue generated by fees associated with online courses, see University’s online course fee policy.

Who Can Participate?

To participate in the OCR program, a course must be taught online at least 3 times from its initial development or at least 3 times since it was last redesigned in the OCR.


Applications must be delivered to 104 North Hall by 4:00pm on the listed due date.
