2.  2013-2014 eLearning Grants:

View guidelines on our eLearning page.

Each fall grants are awarded to:

  • Develop a new online course ($3,000 stipend per course for an individual or for college teams, and $5,400 for cross-district teams; amount to be shared equally by the faculty team).
  • eLearning grants should be used for all LMS based course conversions (i.e. converting from a face-to-face class to a hybrid or an online course).  If the course is NOT currently taught (within the district) in the "new" modality it will be considered a new course.  However, please consider a curriculum grant (course revision) if the course is currently taught in the modality of interest somewhere in the district.
