This paper contains summaries of three presentations that explore critical issues that must be addressed before launching a non-traditional online degree program.

"Weaving a Virtual Education Web: Creation of an Online, Non Traditional Doctor of Pharmacy Program" (Dennis Mungall) focuses on factors to consider when weaving a virtual education program, consistency of course design, faculty course development training and responsibilities, creating the "on campus" feel, student training, recruitment, and supportive resources (e.g., residents, fellows, and technology experts). "Integrating an Online Program into Existing University Infrastructure" (Barbara Skunza) discusses how to liaison with the existing infrastructure to ensure a smooth administrative transition for an online program, including the idea stage, building the team, marketing/recruitment, university processes, and atmosphere.
