1 Approved 11/22/13 by Dr. MaryLou Apple, President Policy No. 2:05:00:00 Page 1 of 54 MOTLOW STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUBJECT: DISTANCE EDUCATION I. PURPOSE The purpose of this policy is to describe the procedures and guidelines for implementing, maintaining, and evaluating distance education courses at Motlow State Community College. II. DEFINITIONS A. Distance Education As defined by TBR Policy 2:05:00:00, distance education occurs where there is a physical separation of the teacher and the learner and when communication and instruction take place through, or supported by, any technological means such as telephone, radio, television, computers, satellite delivery, interactive video, or any combination of present and future telecommunication technology. The TBR Distance Education Committee has defined distance education to include: correspondence courses, videotapes, audiotapes, two-way video and audio, computerbased media and the emerging technology of the Internet. For purposes of this policy, Motlow State Community College embraces the TBR definition of distance education, as well as that of The Commission on Colleges, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, distance education is defined as a formal education process in which the majority of the instruction (interaction between students and instructors and among students) in a course occurs when students and instructors are not in the same place. A distance education course may employ correspondence study, or audio, video, or computer technologies. Instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous. Synchronous instruction shall be defined as instruction requiring the simultaneous participation of all students and instructors. It is oftentimes referred to as real-time instruction, i.e., it provides for direct and immediate interaction between students and teachers. Such instruction may use online resources like chat rooms, web conferencing, etc., that can eliminate certain place-bound classroom constraints, but such instruction does not eliminate time-bound constraints. Asynchronous instruction shall be defined as instruction that does not require the simultaneous participation of all students and instructions. It is based on student selfpaced study combined with online resources such as threaded discussions, streaming video, individual and listservs, voice boards, etc., to facilitate information sharing between students and instructors. Asynchronous instruction is not constrained by place or time.

Types of Courses Online Course: An asynchronous course conducted online via the Internet; no on ground instruction, no on ground classroom time (labs conducted online or in person); may utilize online or proctored testing. Online Hybrid Course: A course that combines synchronous and/or asynchronous online instruction with traditional on ground face-to-face instruction. The majority of the course, i.e., at least 51% of all instructional material/content, is conducted online via the Internet, with the remaining instructional material/content being covered in a traditional on ground classroom environment; may utilize online, proctored or traditional on ground testing. On Ground Hybrid Course: A course that combines traditional on ground face-to-face instruction with synchronous and/or asynchronous online instruction. The majority of the course, i.e., at least 51% of all instructional material/content, is conducted in a traditional on ground face-to-face classroom environment, with the remaining instructional material/content being conducted online; may utilize online, proctored or traditional on ground testing. RODP Web Course: Regents Online Degree Program courses conducted online via the Internet; no on ground instruction, no on ground classroom time (labs conducted online or in person); courses are identified with a prefix of R50 in the class schedule; may utilize online or proctored testing. Video Course: Tele-course delivery format. Student receives a set of videotapes or views the tele-course on CATV for instructional purposes; no on ground instruction, and no on ground classroom time (study groups conducted online or in person). Course examinations or evaluations may be conducted utilizing online or proctored testing. ITV Course: Students attend class in classroom or off-campus classroom location. Students communicate with each other and the instructor in a fully interactive, real-time classroom through both the Internet or television monitors, video cameras, microphones, and or supplemental technology; may utilize online or proctored testing. Correspondence Courses: Paper-based courses involving individual, independent instruction of a student by an instructor on a one-to-one basis in the form of written material. Interaction and feedback between the student and instructor take the form of (1) written assignments, (2) testing, (3) evaluations, (4) guidance, and (5) assistance through several types of media (i.e. print/written word, telephone, fax, and other electronic technologies). Some on-campus meetings may also be required. Course examinations or evaluations may be conducted utilizing online or proctored testing. Traditional Enhanced Course: Any traditional on ground face-to-face course that utilizes a traditional curricular design, but incorporates different multimedia and Desire2Learn

FACULTY PREPARATION, LOAD AND COMPENSATION Faculty teaching online courses shall possess the same academic or teaching credentials/qualifications as those required of faculty teaching comparable on ground courses, and/or as prescribed by the Commission on Colleges Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Faculty Credentials Guidelines, and MSCC Policy No. 5:02:02:30, Faculty Promotion. The teaching load for all Motlow State Community College full time faculty is 15 semester credit hours per term, or 30 semester credit hours per academic year, as described in MSCC Policy No. 5:10:00:00, Faculty Class Assignment, Teaching Load, and Summer School. All distance education courses shall be considered the same as all other college courses when determining faculty load and teaching assignments. (Note: At the discretion of the appropriate Department Chair/Director, and as approved by the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs and/or the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Regents Online Degree Program courses may be utilized in establishing a faculty member s required load and teaching assignment.) Motlow College recognizes and appreciates the unique circumstances associated with developing and teaching distance education courses. Prior to developing or teaching a distance education course, the appropriate Department Chair/Director will ensure that the applicable faculty member has completed the necessary course development and/or instructor training, and is adequately prepared for developing and/or teaching the designated course(s). This is particularly important for faculty developing and/or teaching online courses. (Note: Online courses include all online, online hybrid and on ground hybrid courses.) To ensure proper and adequate training, The Director of the Center of Emphasis for Academic Technologies is responsible for developing, scheduling and conducting all required online course developer and instructor training. As a minimum, two online course developer and instructor training sessions will be scheduled and conducted each semester. These training sessions may be offered on ground and/or online. The Director of the Center of Emphasis for Academic Technologies shall also be responsible for developing, scheduling and conducting at least two online course developer and instructor refresher training sessions each semester. As with the regular training sessions, refresher training sessions may be offered on ground and/or online. It is absolutely mandatory that a faculty member complete the required developer and/or instructor training prior to developing and/or teaching an online course, and as a minimum, must complete one developer and/or instructor refresher training session each year, in order to be eligible to continue to teach an online course or serve as an online course developer and/or maintainer. As required, and in coordination with the Director of the Center of Emphasis for Academic Technologies, it shall be the responsibility of the MSCC Coordinator for Distance Learning & RODP to oversee the scheduling and conduct of all regular and refresher online developer and/or instructor training.

This documentation shall be retained on file by the department chairs/directors and the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs for as long as the course developer/maintainer and instructor is involved in online instruction for the college. In addition to providing the required online course developer and instructor training, the Director of the Center of Emphasis for Academic Technologies shall also serve as the developer/instructor resource center for assisting faculty with the actual development and teaching of online courses. This assistance should include such information and support as is required to create the necessary course content modules, instructional links, resource material, uploading examinations, compliance with Americans Disabilities Act, etc. Additionally, the Director of the Center of Emphasis for Academic Technologies shall also provide the training and assistance as is necessary to ensure that course developers/maintainers and instructors can effectively utilize all of the available online software management system tools and capabilities. Because of the special demands that distance education courses place on faculty time and resources, faculty who prepare and/or teach such courses may receive special compensation for their efforts, as outlined in Section IV. B. below. When preparing and teaching distance education courses that requires particular consideration not required of conventional classroom instruction, such as learning and maintaining competencies on various pieces of specialized equipment and software capabilities not usually needed in general classroom situations, faculty may be considered for special compensation as recommended by the appropriate department chair/director and approved by the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Additionally, the process of continually maintaining and upgrading the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to sustain instructional currency, especially when that currency is associated with a constantly changing state-of-the-art alternative delivery technology, may also involve special consideration and/or recompense for the faculty involved. Each distance education course must provide for interaction and timely feedback between students and faculty member(s) teaching the course. A. Redistributed Time and Compensation 1. Interactive Television (ITV) a. No redistributed time or financial compensation will be provided for the development of ITV courses. However, since faculty have the option to periodically conduct an ITV course from any one of the individual teaching locations to which the course is being transmitted, compensation to cover travel expenses may be requested.
