ONLINE ELEARNING STUDENT ORIENTATION




   For all students who enroll in an online course
                                                                      HIGHLIGHTS
Student Orientation


Suggestions on How?
    • Requirement as a component of
       • ACA 118 – Student Success
       • CIS 070 – Fundamentals of Computing or CIS 110 –
         Introduction to Computers

    • or Requiring ACA 112 – Introduction to Distance Learning as a
      prerequisite



Additional Recommendation:

   Traditional face-to-face students should go through a similar
   orientation that introduces CPCC Processes, Expectations,
   Computer Skills.

Quality

Recommendation:
The Quality Course Review should be mandatory for every distance
course: online (IN), hybrid (HY), and teleweb (TW).

    • New course/Division Masters be submitted for QCR –Quality
    Course Review.
    • Division Directors/delegator will take a lead in the submission
    process
    • QCR in conjunction with areas/divisions.
    • CPCC Quality Course Review rubric is thorough, effective and
    does not need immediate modifications

Subcommittee Highlights and Recommendations
Quality

 Recommends: an eLearning Liaison position

        • A pilot process for Division’s Quality Course Review. This review
        process includes the participation of an eLearning Liaison as one of
        the reviewers.

        • eLearning Liaison would be an assigned instructor by the Division
        who would be compensated for their additional duties by the way of
        re-assigned time or a stipend).

        •Also recommended by Strategic Plan



  Recommends:

          •The implementation of guidelines for appropriate use of master
          courses or QCR reviewed courses from another instructors. (A draft
          document was developed by eLearning and this subcommittee.)

LEARNING SYSTEMS - LMS / CMS
LMS – Blackboard and Moodle




                                                                             HIGHLIGHTS
Environmental Survey:
     •Identifying faculty preferences for the online teaching environment
     •Identifying student preferences for online learning environment
     •Evaluate the effectiveness of existing learning systems to the needs
     of our community

Timeline Considerations: The subcommittee recommends that no
significant transitions or migrations to alternative or secondary LMS/CMS
platforms occur before the upcoming SACS visitation.

Learning Systems: A migration from Blackboard to Moodle or Moodle to
other platforms is not seamless, and requires an investment. At this time,
the subcommittee does not support the introduction of additional LMS.
