Program Development

Before seeking college approval, get us involved in the development process. We will work with you to make sure that considerations for distance education are discussed and included in your program proposal.

Key benefits to engaging ODEE are:

  • Collaboration: We collaborate with college curricular committees to develop distance education programs.
  • Adherance to Standards: We work in parallel to the the Office of Academic Affairs program approval process to ensure that programs meet university, state, and federal guidelines for distance education. 
  • Memorandum of Understanding: As part of the distance education program development process, program and college stakeholders enter into an agreement with ODEE. This agreement, called a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), outlines the roles and responsibilities of both parties. Each MOU will be tailored to fit the specific needs of that program.
