Purdue Online and the ITaP Instructional Design team provide consultation and training to Purdue instructors interested in developing online versions of courses. The Undergraduate Online Course Development Program funds the transformation of selected face-to-face courses to an online format, provides training and support, and follows up with research and assessment focused on how the online environment supports student success. It is expected that courses developed under this program will be offered at least three times. Purdue Online provides some limited subsidies for instructional costs for some courses developed through the Online Course Development Program.
