OCL Phase 2 Timeline Update • Move phase 2 of the Open Course Library back by 1 quarter (from fall 2011 to winter 2012) • OCL Phase 2 timeline: • RFP/faculty selection: fall 2011 • Develop: winter-spring 2012 • Pilot courses: fall 2012 • Revise: winter 2013 • Release courses: spring 2013
OCL Phase 2 Timeline Update • Rationale: • Quality is top priority • Fall OCL phase 2 RFP is preferable • Running the phase 2 RFP and selection in Fall will allow for greater exposure and a wider pool of proposals • Timeline adjustment allows additional time for other Fall 2011 projects • OPEN DOL support initiative • OLI adoption initiative
