Teaching an Online Class

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 Process

The Distance Learning Advisory Committee in collaboration with the Educational Technology Department, approves teachers and courses to be offered online. Faculty must work closely with both the Educational Technology Department and their home departments 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 Class Faculty interested in "taking over" an already developed online class must first talk with their department chair and the faculty member who originally developed the online class. A "take-over" meets the definition only if the faculty member "taking over" the existing online class is given permission to use the content from the existing online class. Applications for "take-overs" are taken throughout the year. Faculty who have never taught online must take the District Mandated training.
