Standards and Guidelines

To ensure the structure of each online course is consistent, it is imperative that your course fits within the proper guidelines and includes the main requirements.  This section will provide you with the basic guidelines to follow when preparing your course.

Online courses are courses in which the instructional interactions between the instructor and student do not occur in the same place or at the same time in which instruction is delivered, primarily through the College's Learning Management System (LMS) - CANVAS.  Education is supported with regular and substantive interaction between the students and the instructor.

You are expected to include a variety of course materials to support/supplement the textbook and class activities.  These should include your lectures, study guides, check sheets, etc.  You can also use publisher provided PowerPoints for the text you are using, but these do not fulfill the requirement to have your own lectures in the class.  It is acceptable to have some of these delivered as text-based documents, but you should also incorporate other visual/audio tools.  These could include your short video lectures, YouTube videos, images/graphics where appropriate, audio files created by you or the publisher, etc.
