What does it cost to develop an online course?

To determine the cost of developing an online course, one must consider:

  1. Design cost
  2. Development cost

Design Cost

An online course design generally consists of:

  • A detailed break down of the learning objectives, learning messages and supporting information, activities and resources
  • A visual layout, such as a storyboard that presents the way the learning messages and supporting information and activities will be presented. This should include instructions for development of any interactive activities.
  • A voice over script for any audio content (if required)

The process of designing a course can be highly varied depending on the nature of the content, and may involve research, consultations with experts and/or workshops and consultations with stakeholders.


Development Cost

Course development costs are a function of:

  • Duration
  • Delivery format
  • Content requirements (for example, does new video content need to be created)
  • Level of interactivity
  • Accessibility requirements (for example, does the course need to be suitable for people with disabilities?)
