Online and Hybrid Course Approval Process

The Distance Education Committee needs to approve any course that will be taught either online or hybrid. In order to be approved, the DEC is asking the faculty member who will teach the course to prepare two online modules on Moodle for the course that will be presented to be approved.

Click here to request a Moodle shell to create the two online modules

A copy of the syllabus needs to be uploaded to the Moodle shell, as the DEC will need to review it to make sure aspects related to online education are included. 

Our committee needs to have access to the modules a week prior to the next scheduled meeting so that we have enough time to review them. These are the dates for the 2016/2017 academic year:
