Ideally, for online and hybrid courses to be successful, they will be completed before the course is launched. The estimated time for preparing and designing a course varies. We recommend to set aside 20-30 hours, spread over several weeks (4-8 weeks before the course launch) to allow for changes and unplanned interruptions. SCI IDTS can offer guidance on the method and timeline that will work best for you and your course.

Developing or revising your course, you will need to consider the student learning outcomes and objectives, class schedule, level of the course, the format of the course, available technologies, and resources.
