New Online Course Development for Winter and Spring 2015
Contact Dennis Hitchcox
A new online course is defined as a course that does not currently exist in an online format at PCC. If the course is already offered online at PCC, it is not new. A request of this type would be defined as a Duplicate Development request or perhaps a course revision. Return to the Online Development Information Page for more info.
The Deans of Instruction and Distance Education identified the following priorities for new online course development:
- Development of new online degrees and certificates
- Development that fills gaps to complete online degrees and certificates such as the AAOT, ASOT Business, AGS, and CTE degrees and certificates where significant course work is already offered online
- Development of new shareable online courses or SAC shells, specifically those developed through a collaborative process with instructors, Distance Education staff, and faculty mentors
- Development of specialized courses where unique needs exist for online delivery
Faculty members new to teaching online at PCC are required to complete training; i.e., Online Instructor Orientation, in order to teach or develop online courses.
Updated compensation options are provided on the request form. In the absence of a specific written agreement, all courses may be shared with others at PCC. All courses are developed under a letter of agreement and include a course review for design and accessibility.
