Q: What is the Online Acceleration Committee and how will it affect the long-term plan for online education and incorporating CU Online into the overall CU brand?
The OAC will affect the long-term plan for online education by designing a plan that maximizes quality and the unique offerings at CU while simultaneously considering how to leverage efficiencies to eliminate redundancy.
It is critical to note that the plan put forth by the OAC will be reviewed and approved by the President and the Chancellors from each of the four campuses. While the plan will implement the recommendations approved by this group, the OAC is further charged to create a plan that will allow for a governance process to recommend adjustments and alterations to the infrastructure as needed as the new structure is being rolled out. This process should rely on a model of continuous quality improvement to facilitate appropriate changes to optimize supports for online programs to achieve shared goals for high-quality programs that support student success.

ODE also supports faculty who are not engaged in the ONE awards, in particular through training and development activities, as well as 1:1 consultations with instructional designers to support the design and development of online courses. Additionally, ODE has been highly engaged in facilitating a rapid transition to remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring, and will continue to support faculty teaching virtual live courses and online courses this summer.
