To better understand the dynamics of distance education as a viable means of instructional delivery, a qualitative study was conducted in 2007 among faculty of a College of Education to identify needs related to creating distance education courses. Findings indicated professors of all ranks expressed fear of technology but noted the importance of distance education for increasing enrollment of their departments. Understanding professors’ needs as important and essential, researchers designed a follow up case study based on the results as identified in the previous study. An action plan was created to meet faculty needs. A faculty colleague whose specialty area is instructional design created a seminar series to teach participants the principles for designing and creating online courses. This paper will describe the process experienced as reported by participants in a final survey and focus group interview.
