Grant Types

ELO offers three types of funding to develop and support online and/or blended courses. These include:

Develop new online courses. A course is considered new if:

  • The course has never been offered online, or more than 50% of the course content needs to be designed, or redesigned when converting an existing online or face-to-face course.
  • Typical tasks to create a new online course include:
    • Aligning learning objectives, outcomes, activities, and assessments.
    • Producing videos (recording and post-production)
    • Converting old videos to new format (e.g., Adobe Presenter videos to mp4)
    • Creating or reformatting course pages (e.g., converting web pages to pages in Canvas)
    • Moving existing course material to a new LMS (Moodle to Canvas or vice versa)
    • Creating new assessments, such as quizzes and assignments
    • Setting up course design evaluations
Develop new blended courses (for LAS only). A course is considered blended (flipped or hybrid) if:
  • At least 50% of the course content is delivered online.
  • Tasks include those listed above for new online courses as well as:
    • Designing in-class and online activities to complement each other.
    • Designing in-class time to be used creatively
    • Designing assessments that align with the blended approach.
Improve existing online/blended courses. A course is considered to be in need of improvement if:
  • Less than 50% of the recorded lectures and/or content needs to be re-recorded or changed.
  • Assessments need to be updated (e.g., updating quizzes and assignments).
  • Graphics need to be updated
