Online instructors represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the mission of BYU-Idaho and BYU-Pathway Worldwide. They guide students to become capable disciple leaders in their personal and professional lives.

Time & Compensation

Online instructors spend roughly 10 hours per week in a typical course. Instructors with a master's degree or higher will be compensated at a rate of $1,050 per credit and instructors with a bachelor's degree will receive $950 per credit.


Online curriculum is pre-developed by BYU-Idaho faculty and instructional designers. Within the framework of this curriculum, online instructors create an inviting, student-focused, learning environment that fosters learning by study and by faith. Typically instructors do not do live video lectures.


Prior to teaching, new instructors complete an online instructor training experience. This paid, asynchronous training prepares instructors to facilitate a student-centered learning experience online, including the BYU-Idaho Learning Model and best practices in online teaching.
