Journal Cover
From Volume 37 Number 3 | April–June 2009
By Katrina Meyer, Janis Bruwelheide, Russell Poulin

The project described in this article was an attempt to uncover the principles of financial sustainability for online programs and to align these with a guide to managing online programs. An initial team of experienced online educators developed draft principles, which were then reviewed by an external consultant and revised; the revised principles were subsequently reviewed and critiqued by seven directors of FIPSE projects that involved developing and offering online programs. The revised principles are a comprehensive set of questions, issues, and concerns that are important for administrators to understand and address when planning for online programs.
