The results of the development of eight online undergraduate and graduate courses to meet the new International Society for Technology in Education and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education standards for the Computer Science certification endorsement released in January 2003. This initiative was a collaborative effort between The University of Louisiana Monroe and Northwestern State University in three major areas: 1) the development and institutionalization of a model for faculty collaboration and support in the area of distance delivery; 2) design, testing, implementation eight online courses; and 3) the evaluation for further improvement and sharing of this process to support the development of other related courses and programs. The focus will be on the curriculum-driven and pedagogical development, the challenges and solutions of the technologies chosen for the delivery of the courses and an evaluation on technologies used (Blackboard Learning System™, Tegrity® WebLearner, Camtasia Studio, Flash video, and etc).
