Technology Mediated Instruction

This includes support for faculty teaching telecourses as well as online classes and techenhanced face-to-face classess using Insight (powered by Moodle), CCSF's Learning Management System.
CCSF offers distance learning via online and telecourses.
Guidelines for Assigning Online Classes
In order for a faculty member to be assigned an online class, it is a college requirement that the faculty member be well trained in the pedagogy of online learning. Such training is completed with the Educational Technology Department.
Faculty who have not been approved by the Educational Technology Department to teach an online class cannot be assigned to teach either a hybrid-online or a fully online class. Assigning "Staff" to an online section does not meet with this district requirements.
Federal, State and WASC requirements for delivering of quality distance education programs support such requirements.
