Getting Started

The first step in the process is to discuss the proposed course with your Department Chair to ensure that putting the course online is aligned with departmental priorities.

Next, review the Online Course Development Process, Expectations, and Obligations document for an overview of how we’ll work with you to develop (or re-develop) the best course for your students’ needs.

Once you’re ready to submit a course development proposal, follow these instructions to find the necessary forms:

1. Go to the CTELT Course Development application in the Lotus Notes workspace. Not sure where this is?
Follow these instructions:

  • In Lotus Notes, pull down the File menu and choose Application, then click Open         
  • In the Look In: field, pull down the menu and select LNapps/FHSU
  • Scroll down and double-click on the apps folder
  • Scroll down and double-click on CTELT Course Development  

2. To begin a new proposal click the Agreement and Understanding button at the upper left of the page.

3.Fill in the Course Developer name, Course Number and Title, Proposed Semester for the Initial Offering, and Pathway.

4. Read the form and choose “Yes” or “No” in the digital syllabus section.(Choosing “No” does not disqualify you from this process.)

5. Next, click Edit Approver List at the top to select the appropriate administrators for approvals.

6. Double-click Entered when submitted, click the down-arrow by the Approver name field to select your Department Chair, then click OK. Verify the correct name shows in the field and click OK once more.

7. Follow this procedure once again to enter your Dean’s name as the second approver.

8. Finally, click Submit for Approval. A message will appear saying that “Notification has been sent to [Department Chair’s name].”

9.After the Agreement and Understanding form has been approved by all parties, you will be contacted by e-mail to move to the next step.
