Abstract—As the popularity of online education increases and institutions seek to grow their online offerings to meet student demand, more faculty need to be trained to teach online.

In this paper, a flexible and customizable self-paced training model for preparing faculty to teach online is described and suggestions shared for institutions seeking to offer self-paced online professional development training opportunities for faculty.
