Faculty Requirements to Teach Online/Hybrid Classes (Application and Checksheet) -




Online or Internet Classes:

Online courses are taken exclusively over the Internet, there are no on-campus meetings. However, books are required. All work is submitted to your instructor online. Your "virtual classroom" is delivered over the web via a course management system (CMS) Go to http://lamission.edu/online and check to see which CMS your course uses. The definition of an online or hybrid class is one in which 51% of the content of the class is delivered over the internet. -


51% rule - 51 -

"A DE course/section or session is defined as the use of technology utilized 51 percent or more of the time to deliver instruction during the course term and where the student and instructor are separated by distance. The delivery of instruction in the DE modality can include the use of one or a number of technologies. As an example, an instructor can use the Internet, email video and class lecture to deliver instruction (hybrid course). However, if the use of the combined mediated technology is 50 percent or less, or the student and instructor are not separated by distance, the course/section/session is considered a classroom-based traditional course/section/ session."


Board of Governors - California Community Colleges - Distance Education Regulations and Guidelines - Section 55205 - http://www.cccco.edu/divisions/esed/aa_ir/disted/attachments/DEGuidelinesMar2004.doc



Hybrid Classes:


Hybrid courses meet both on-campus and online - a course that blends online and face to face delivery- (between 30 - 50 percent of class content is delivered online) - think of them as traditional face-to-face courses where some of the on- campus class meetings are replaced with online assignments. In a hybrid course, you will attend meetings on-campus during the date and times listed in this schedule of classes. - see 51% rule - 51 - Boarf of Governors - California Community Colleges - Distance Education Regulations and Guidelines - Section 55205 - http://www.cccco.edu/divisions/esed/aa_ir/disted/attachments/DEGuidelinesMar2004.doc


Web-Enhanced Classes:


Web-Enhanced courses are traditional face-to-face classes that are augmented with course web sites. However, unlike hybrid courses, web-enhanced classes continue to hold all of their meetings on-campus. The course web site is an extra value.
