In the summer of 2014, the OEI Steering Committee recommended a list of courses for inclusion in the initial phases of the Online Education Initiative. These high demand Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T/AS-T) courses were chosen based on C-ID approval status, inclusion in AA-T/AS-T degrees, student demand data, and course fulfillment of transfer area requirements.
Based on a voluntary application process, online courses from pilot college faculty were selected to participate in the peer review process to align their courses with the OEI Course Design Rubric. Faculty submitting these courses also gained access to instructional design and accessibility support. These courses will be the first to have the opportunity participate in the Course Exchange.
All courses in the Exchange will be taught in the common course management system for the state, which is Canvas.
