  46. 46. You Already Have Expectations• The questions are … – How clearly have they been communicated? – How easy are they for the following to find? • Students? • Faculty? • Staff and Administration?
  47. 47. Have you clearly defined the following items?• What the college expects from online students.• What online students should expect from the college.• What the college expects from online faculty members.• What the online faculty should expect from the college (administration).

  49. 49. Example #1 – for faculty• Online Office Hours• Faculty teaching online are expected to maintain office hours for online (distance) students:• Faculty who teach completely online are expected to post information about their available weekly hours within the online course shell, including information to inform the students of the various modes in which the instructor is available to students who need to contact the instructor from a distance.
  50. 50. Example #1 – for faculty• Online Office Hours• Modes of communication can include, but are not limited, the following: face- to-face on campus, telephone, email, live chat room, instant messaging, webcast or webinar room, Skype or similar Internet calling service, etc.
  51. 51. Example #2 – for faculty• Class Size Maximums• Maximum class enrollments are not dependent upon the delivery method employed.• Class size maximums are established through the college’s curriculum approval process and per the faculty collective bargaining agreement.
  52. 52. Example #1 – for students• Online Course “Attendance”• The college expects online students to attend courses on a regular basis. In the online learning system, “attendance” is determined by student engagement with the classroom tools, with other students, and with the instructor.
  53. 53. Example #1 – for students• Online Course “Attendance”• Students are expected to be aware of the Failure for Non-Attendance policy and how it applies to online courses.• For online courses, students will be assigned an FN if they do not demonstrate attendance by completing scheduled tasks or communicating with the instructor for 14 consecutive calendar days.
