Online with Online Scheduled Meetings
These online courses will require you to be available for scheduled class meeting times when you will be expected to participate in real-time. This course may also require that examinations be completed in a proctored environment. There may be an additional cost for online proctoring. Some courses may offer other proctoring options (e.g. on campus or at an approved testing center).
This model may be a good choice if you:
- Are comfortable teaching synchronously online.
- Are willing to take the Distance Education (DE) On-Demand course in OAKS or have already taken the DE Readiness Course.
- Have their course flagged as Schedule Type: Online + Scheduled Online Mtgs in the catalog.
This model is available to courses that are classified as “Online Exclusively” by the Registrar in Banner.
Please visit each of the following steps for additional information.
To teach online with online scheduled meetings, faculty must have their department chair’s approval and meet the requirements of the DE Contingency Plan. These online courses will require you to hold synchronous online classes at a pre-determined date and time and only during that time in order to avoid schedule conflicts for the students.
