Online Course Proposals

Oregon State Ecampus offers funding and a high level of support for the development of new online courses and for the redevelopment of existing online courses.

Key information:

  • Please submit course development proposals by the deadlines below.
  • Online course development or redevelopment occur over a two-term timeline and includes participation in a funded course development or redevelopment workshop.
    • Funding transfers are from department to department; Ecampus does not hire or pay faculty directly.
  • Courses must be developed and taught in Canvas, OSU’s learning management system.
  • Courses are designed and developed collaboratively. Faculty partner with Ecampus instructional designers, training professionals and multimedia developers to create well-designed, effective learning experiences for students.
