Description: With increased use of online education, both students and instructors are adapting to the online environment Online educators must adjust to the change in responsibilities required to teach online, as it is quite intensive during the designing, teaching, and revising stages. The purpose of this study is to examine and update workload management strategies developed by Rag an and Terheggen (2003) and to investigate new emerging strategies, A modified Delphi method was used wherein the participants, business education online educators and trainers, were asked to revise current workload management strategies and to add emerging strategies. These workload management strategies provide a course of action (1) for those teaching online courses to help them reduce workload, (2) for online instructors acting in the role of course designer, and (3) for external course designers and administrators through valuable institutional support.
