How much work is involved in course conversion?

Transforming a course for the online environment often requires redesign effort to clarify learning objectives and organize course content and identify resources. It is estimated that an instructor needs approximately 30 to 40 hours to design a course, 10 to 20 hours of technical support and 6-16 hours of instructional design to reconfigure and support the online course. The Online Learning team offers a stipend toward development to first-time academic course creators.
