While many instructors worldwide operate largely on their own when it comes to development of online courses, a growing number of institutions committed to online education have increasingly turned to a team approach for course development. The “team” may be as small as an instructor paired with an instructional designer, instructional technologist, or other technically oriented person providing assistance, or it may be a larger group of individuals—technologists, designers, graphic artists, and programmers, along with a project manager—joined in their efforts by an instructor who most likely serves as the content expert and perhaps plays other roles as well. There may be peer reviewers from the ranks of fellow instructors, or external subject matter experts.
