Approved Online Classes

In accordance with the AFT 2121 Contract and Title 5, City College of San Francisco requires instructors to train to teach online and to be approved for each course that is developed for online delivery. For questions re-assigned time for development, please refer to the most current AFT 2121 Contract. Questions? Please contact the department chair. 

Application Review Timeline

The Distance Learning Advisory Committee has completed the review and recommendation of courses to develop in 2020-21. The Office of Online Learning approved the development of courses and notifications are TBA.

The DLAC will resume reviewing and recommending applications in September for development in Spring 2021. 

Interested instructional faculty are welcome to complete the application, after talking with their department chair. However, applications will not be reviewed by the DLAC until September. 

Application Process

The Distance Learning Advisory Committee recommends courses for development to the Office of Online Learning who then makes awards to instructors to develop a specific course within the academic year. Faculty must work closely with both the Office of Online Learning as well as the Educational Technology Department and their home department when teaching online.

New Online Faculty who have never developed an online class for CCSF and whose application is approved for developing a new online class must take the SFCCD mandated training. Trainings are offered 2-3 times per year and are filled on a first come first served basis. 

Returning Online Faculty who have taught online at CCSF may apply to develop additional courses.

Taking Over an Existing Online Course Faculty interested in "taking over" an already developed online class must first talk with their department chair to find out if more sections of that particular course are needed. Applications for "take-overs" are taken throughout the academic year following the same application process to develop an online course. Faculty who have never taught online must take the District Mandated training. Faculty who have already developed an online course must complete District Mandated training.
