This paper examines the process of preparing and coordinating a group of graduate students to work with faculty in the development of online hybrid courses for the Post-Baccalaureate Certification in Secondary Education and the Master's in Special Education programs at the College of Education, University of Hawaii at Manoa. The analysis revealed several themes about the online course development project which have implications for future initiatives. Additionally, data collected from graduate students' time logs determined the breakdown of time spent in the various aspects of online course development. Analysis of the time log data identified planning/strategizing, WebCT course site design, other content development and preparing course materials as the key aspects of online course development.
