Abstract

Abstract: Institutions of higher education are finding cost effective ways of developing and offering online courses to current and potential new audiences. Quality courses must be developed and delivered using cost effective resources. These resources should certainly include the institutions knowledge capital as represented by faculty expertise and experience at an institution. The knowledge capital needs to complement recognized standards and best practices in online learning. Faculty can teach and mentor other faculty to use various technologies effectively. Choosing an appropriate mentoring model, and implementing a professional development program should reflect needs of the learners, and the goals and culture of the institution.
