  8. 8. RE: Synchronous<br />It is NOT considered to be a synchronous requirement (as per the MnSCU guidelines) if a student needs to have arranged meetings with small groups of classmates or arranged online meetings with the instructor.<br />
  9. 9. 03 – Predominantly Online<br />Nearly all instruction is delivered online.<br />No more than two required activities or meetings of the class as a cohort may occur face to face in the same physical location.<br />The course may have required proctored exams, in addition to the one or two face to face meetings.<br />Proctored Exams?<br />Yes<br />No<br />Code 03<br />Synchronous<br />Components?<br />Required F2F Meetings?<br />Either Yes <br />Or No<br />3 or more F2F?<br />Yes<br />No<br />
  10. 10. 03 – Predominantly Online<br />A proctored exam is considered one of the F2F meetings if the proctored exam is given to the entire class at a specified time and location. If the student has a choice in when and where to get the exam proctored, the proctored exam is not considered to be one of the face to face meetings.<br />The course may have required synchronous, in addition to the proctored exams and the one or two face to face meetings.<br />Proctored Exams?<br />Yes<br />No<br />Code 03<br />Synchronous<br />Components?<br />Required F2F Meetings?<br />Either Yes <br />Or No<br />3 or more F2F?<br />Yes<br />No<br />

Reduced F2F time with some instruction delivered online<br />The course blends online and face-to-face delivery.<br />Some of the course content is delivered online.<br />The course has more than two face to face class sessions during the term.<br />Same as the current media code 09 (Web- enhanced).<br />3 or more?<br />Reduced<br />F2F Time?<br />Code 09<br />Yes<br />Yes<br />Yes<br />Required F2F Meetings?<br />
  12. 12. 00 – Classroom<br />Traditional F2F classroom.<br />No reduced seat-time.<br />Combines previous codes 00 & 10, (classroom and web-supplemented) – now 00 only.<br />This is the default media code.<br />3 or more?<br />Reduced<br />F2F Time?<br />Code 00<br />Yes<br />Yes<br />No<br />Required F2F Meetings?<br />
  13. 13. Questions<br />Data gathering techniques for media codes?<br />How do we best get information from faculty about their courses?<br />How far in advance do we need to have this information?<br />
  14. 14. Questions<br />Can we change a media code after it’s established?<br />What about instructor changes after enrollment has started?<br />Answer: Apparently, after enrollment has started, we are not allowed to change the media code of the course.(What if we notify all enrolled students?)<br />
  15. 15. Questions<br />What is considered synchronous? <br />If a recording can be watched later is that still synchronous? <br />Does the synchronous component have to be graded? What if it is a very small % of the grade?<br />
  16. 16. Questions<br />What about Independent Study – code 06, and Guided, code 11?<br />Are these for online courses that are self-directed?<br />Does MnOnline have an expectation of interaction between student-faculty and student-student?<br />If there is no required interaction in an online course, how should they be coded?<br />
  17. 17. Questions<br />How will the course search engines deal with these new codes?<br />Will each of the three online course codes (03, 12, 13) have a separate search choice on the drop-down menu?<br />
  18. 18. Questions<br />How will things like “synchronous” and “completely asynchronous” be described/ explained to students? (so they can understand it?)<br />
  19. 19. Our BIG Question<br />Why is there no limit on the number of proctored exams that can be required?<br />The shared test proctoring arrangement within MnOnline is untenable if schools are allowed to continue requiring 10 or more proctored assessments per course.<br />Undocumented record = 23 proctorings!!<br />
