Abstract

Responsive, innovative and cost-effective are not often applied in the same sentence to describe a major online project at a large research university. Overcoming the bureaucratic and divisional characteristics of the academic world is a chief hurdle to the development of large-scale projects. The literature supports the need for a mixture of centralized and decentralized instructional technology support (Bates, 2000, Hagner, 2001). The following project demonstrates the effective collaboration of a centralized academic technology unit and a faculty based technology unit in the creation of a major online resource. This online pilot enabled the development of three separate instructional models including the first web-based distance course in the faculty.
