Abstract

Established in 1963, the University of Central Florida (then called Florida Technological University) began classes in October 1968 with an enrollment of less than 2,000 students. Today UCF is a metropolitan university that has five colleges, two branch campuses and a downtown center that serves over 28,000 students. The institution has had a history of ad hoc distance learning activity to serve specific populations over the years. In the summer of 1996, an initiative was made by Academic Affairs in the Provost’s office to begin a systematic process of faculty development for the creation of on-line courses within certain academic programs. The success of this faculty training has lead to rapid institutionalization of distance learning with an emphasis on faculty development.
