Online Course Development Program

The Online Course Development Program (OCDP) guides a cohort of 6-10 faculty members through the process of creating an online class, from the ground up. The program uses the ADDIE instructional design model to guide participants through the process of analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating an online course created for instruction at Hawaiʻi CC.

This OCDP begins in late May, and requires an 8-11 month commitment from participants (depending on whether developed course will be taught in the following fall or spring semester).

Participants are eligible for a stipend for successfully completing the program.

2013-2014 OCDP information and application will be available in February/March 2013.

Download a flier for more information about the current OCDP.
