The purpose of this chapter is to relate a professional experience with the development and delivery of a fully online educational leadership preparation program, and to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with the transition. A corollary purpose is to provide a heuristic experience that might help faculty and programs engaged in such an endeavor (or considering one) to think through the pros, cons, logistics, and unintended consequences of such a transition. To provide a structure to this discussion, the chapter is organized around the following sections: planning, development, implementation, and reflection. The chapter ends with a checklist that summarizes key points from each section into what the author anticipates as a useful and easy-to-use format.
