The Centre for Extended Learning (CEL) is here to help Waterloo faculty and instructors produce online courses. CEL typically has capacity to start new projects about one year from the initial request. Developing an online course at Waterloo takes approximately 10 months, and course authors should be prepared to devote approximately one day per week during that time-frame. The next available first offer date for new courses is Fall 2020.

Please review our course development process, then complete our Course Development Request form to start the discussion about developing a new online course.

Submitting this form does not guarantee your preferred timing. Please wait for confirmation from us before making any arrangements – including release time – to work on the course.

After submission, you and your chair/director/dean will be emailed a copy of the completed form. Please contact Dina Meunier if you do not receive a copy, or if you are not contacted to discuss this project within two weeks.
