This accelerated grant will provide recipients with assistance designing and developing a quality, best-practice-based online and distance education course in a 12–16 week timeline.
Unlike other DELTA Grants, the Rapid Design Grant support is provided through a series of three consultations and two online check-ins. The grant does not supply direct development and media support, but it is designed to provide a structure and the tools necessary to help faculty confidently create their own standards-based online course.
In addition, recipients are awarded $1,000 toward the completion of their online and distance education course. The grant funds can be used for anything related to the creation of the course including hardware, software and even as a stipend for faculty. The faculty recipient time commitment is at least 20 hours to actively collaborate with DELTA staff.
