CCSF offers distance learning via online and telecourses.
Definitions of Distance Learning at CCSF
Online Course - an online course is one where the entire content is delivered via CCSF's learning management system, Insight. No mandatory meetings are required. An optional orientation may be offered.
Hybrid-online Course - a hybrid online course is one where some of the course content is delivered using CCSF's learning management system, Insight and some of the content is delivered via face-to-face meetings.
Guidelines for Assigning Online Classes
In order for a faculty member to be assigned an online class, it is a District 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 ACCJC requirements for delivery of quality distance education programs support such requirements.
