Faculty who are charged with adapting their on-campus courses for online delivery face multiple challenges due to their lack of experience with online course design, online interactions, and online technologies. This paper describes the analysis stage of the instructional design model used for online course development in a large university in the United States. Instructor self-assessment, on-campus course analysis, classroom observations of on-campus courses and initial meetings with instructional designers were used to determine faculty preparedness for teaching online and course characteristics before online course design and delivery were initiated.
