About Advanced Online Teaching and Learning (AOTL)
The AOTL is the district mandated training required for experienced onliners to complete for each subsequent class they wish to teach fully or partially online.
How much work is in the AOTL?
The AOTL includes several checkpoints that faculty must complete in order to pass. AOTL is NOT a self-paced, enter anytime course. The training is closely facilitated by the Office of Online Learning and Educational Technology.
Some of the checkpoints might include updating the instructor website, completing accessibility courses, updating a DEA, submitting at least one module of content to be reviewed using the OEI rubric, meeting with course facilitators, and attending a final course review.
How do faculty get in the AOTL?
Faculty must complete the application to teach online, get recommended by the Distance Learning Advisory Committee (DLAC), and get awarded a training spot by the Office of Online Learning and Educational Technology.
