In Spring 2008, the Course Design Institute (CDI) was launched with the goal of creating fully online versions of high demand General Education (GE) courses in order to boost enrollment options for students during the San Diego State University (SDSU) Summer Session.

Since the program's inception, 78 faculty members have participated in the CDI to develop 85 online courses that have enrolled a total of 14,172 students. This report is intended to provide a brief overview of the program, as well as corresponding enrollment and performance data.
