course payment models

The current (tentative) payment model for the Illinois State courses is sketched out below. The arrows denote the flow of funds between entities involved, or constraints that prevent the flow of funds.

In this case the overall flow is from ISU (a grant from the National Science Foundation) to ISU (another office at the university), but due to various constraints on how money can be spent the path involves teachers and a financial sponsor (the Children First Fund).
