This course is required for all full-time and part-time faculty members who teach fully online or partially online and will provide the critical tools needed for state and federal compliance as well as the tools for producing the highest possible quality online and blended courses.
If you will be teaching a fully online or partially online course in the next year, click on the link below and fill in the brief survey with a choice of dates so we can register you for an eLearning Faculty Status course. If you are planning to develop or teach a course in the near future, you are urged to complete the form soon so that the training can take place in time to benefit both you and your students.
If you have further questions about this course, visit the eLearning Faculty Status Course Web page or contact Dr. Dean Earlix (email@example.com or 4-2584).
