2020-2021 Faculty Handbook

E-Learning Resources

E-Learning courses are available in two formats:

  • Online Courses – Online courses and programs are distributed through the internet, allowing for flexibility in time and/or place constraints normally encountered in traditional, on-campus classes.
  • Hybrid Courses – Hybrid courses are combinations of online and traditional face-to-face classroom instruction. A designated percentage of the class is delivered on campus, and the remaining percentage is delivered in the online environment. The predetermined percentages will vary according to the needs of the particular class and/or the particular instructor.

All faculty are required to use Canvas learning management system to post syllabi, grades and attendance, and other materials for their students to access.

CF Email Requirement for E-Learning Faculty

Instructors who teach E-Learning classes are required to maintain and regularly check their CF email accounts for the duration of the registration period and the semester in which they are teaching. Students may be required to submit assignments via Canvas, but instructors must be available via CF email for other communications from students and staff.

Training for Faculty Participating in E-Learning

Faculty involved in developing E-Learning courses are provided with support in technology training, specific methodology appropriate for the medium of delivery and with systems delivery support. To this end, the Professional Development Center, in cooperation with the E-Learning and Information Technology departments, provides continuous assistance for web-based and other forms of E-Learning instruction. The Professional Development Center offers training for effective use of instructional technology, as well as on ways to encourage communication and trust between students, their instructors and fellow students in E-Learning classes.
