What are the benefits and incentives for online teaching?

Benefits to students and faculty members include flexibility, access and convenience since the courses can be taken and delivered from any location. Successful online programs can also lead to increased satisfaction, higher retention and enrollment for students and greater productivity for faculty. Incentives are available for first-time course transitions. These incentives include monetary stipends toward first-time course development and additional TA support during the online course delivery. Department support and approval is required before a curse can be offered online. See the “Propose a Course” tab under Faculty Resources above.
