Policy Statement
All courses in which at least 25% of the course content is delivered online or through technology-based media must comply with the procedural standards for course design, faculty training, course management, and course review set forth in the Distance Learning Procedures that accompany this policy. These courses must also be equivalent in content and learning objectives to the same courses offered in traditional formats. Faculty teaching distance learning courses must possess the same academic credentials as those required for traditional sections of the same course and must complete the College’s distance education training or equivalent. The Vice President of Instruction must approve any course delivered under the auspices of this policy to assure that all standards for course design, delivery, faculty training, and course review cycle have been met prior to offering the course. In addition, the Vice President of Instruction must assure that any reduction in seat time associated with distance learning courses complies with the federal definition of a credit hour, as documented by institutional policy.
