AbstractIdaho has become increasingly interested in offering online courses to High School students. In Spring 2012, Boise Stateʹs Concurrent Enrollment program approached the Albertsons Library about creating an online version of the 1-credit UNIV106 (Library Research) course in collaboration with the Idaho Digital Learning Academy (IDLA). Boise State librarians were pleased with the opportunity to develop a university-level course for Idaho’s concurrent enrollment High School students. This session will describe the collaborative process of creating UNIV106 curriculum following IDLA’s guidelines for course development. We will share our insights as well as the challenges our team encountered during this year-long project. This course will be offered for the first time in Fall 2013, and has the potential to have a significant impact on Idaho’s students.
