Welcome to the BCcampus Online Program Development Fund (OPDF) Workspace

 

This workspace has been developed by Paul Stacey the BCcampus Director responsible for the OPDF to provide historic and current information on the BCcampus' annual Online Program Development Fund.

 

Growing BC's public post-secondary online learning is one of our goals at BCcampus. Starting in 2003 BCcampus issued an annual Online Program Development Fund (OPDF) Request for Proposals (RFP) to all of BC's public post secondary institutions. The OPDF call for proposals emphasizes inter-institutional collaboration and partnerships for development of online learning resources. Development is focused on for-credit online learning resources that give students access to more programs leading to complete degrees, diplomas and certificates.

 

Since 2003, the Online Program Development Fund has invested $8.25 million. The main outcomes to date are:

  • 131 grants awarded (2003-2009)
  • 100% participation across the post-secondary system
  • 83% partnerships - mostly inter-institutional but also with K-12, health authorities, not-for-profits, professional associations, e-learning companies, First Nations, foundations, amongst others.
  • 41 credentials developed in whole or part via OPDF
  • 317 courses, 10 workshops, 18 web sites/tools and 338 course components (learning objects, labs, textbooks, manuals, videos) developed across almost all academic fields of study
  • 100% licensed for open free sharing & reuse by all post-secondary
