Online Minimum Standards
Online Course Minimum Standards
Online courses cannot be taught the same way as a traditional course. Often this leads to faculty being left out on their own to figure out how to design their online courses.
CPCC has made a commitment to supporting you in the design of your course(s) by providing you with minimum standards for your online course. These range from additional syllabus elements that are not necessary in the traditional course to student engagement strategies in the online environment.
As a guide in this process, there are 2 versions available.
- Basic Checklist
Which provides the Standards in a simple list format
- Checklist aligned with Blackboard Navigational Template
which identifies the elements that are mandatory, modifiable, or optional in the Core Course
If your course is using a division master it is also important that you review the Guidelines for Appropriate use of a Division Master and work with your Division Director, Program Chair, or Discipline Chair for any possible changes.
