Changes in the Type and Timing of Course Platform Information
Andrew McCollough, Associate Provost for Information Technology, E-Learning, and Distance Education
The increasingly diverse nature of the content platforms or course delivery methodology we use, as well as the requirements for greater specificity in regards to these matters by DOE, SACS, BOG and the BOT, means we must collect more complete information about such in a more timely way than in the past.
Much of the information required is not new but the timing for collection of such has been moved forward significantly to enable critical University processes in advance of student registration.
For the Fall 2012 schedule of courses, the information will be collected retroactively in as much as that schedule has already been completed. A simple application for the purpose will open for departmental input no later than July 13th and data input must be completed by close of business July 27th. In the meantime, it is essential that departmental course scheduling coordinators begin collecting information regarding the delivery methods to be used for the Fall courses.
Details on the information required have been sent directly to the course scheduling coordinators. Online training on the input process for course scheduling coordinators will be provided during the first week in July. The training will be recorded and made available to those who are unable to attend the scheduled session(s). Questions about this new process may be directed to Mike Ronco at 352-294-0874, firstname.lastname@example.org.
