Online Learning for Faculty
The majority of students who take online courses at CCRI are enrolled in one of CCRI's programs of study and are taking one or two online courses to complement their on-campus course schedule.
Over 175 different courses and over 200 sections have been offered online in recent terms. Online courses make up a regular part of CCRI's offerings and the choices students make for their education.
CCRI supports faculty teaching in an online environment in several ways.
- The Executive Director of Online Learning in the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs provides direction and guidance for effective teaching in online and hybrid courses.
- The Effective Practices in Online Teaching (EPTO) is a self-paced online course that instructs faculty in pedagogy and policy specific to online teaching. Other professional development for online teaching is available through the Learning Design Center.
- The Online Learning Advisory Committee addresses matters pertaining to online course quality, evaluation, delivery, structure
- The Online Learning Policy outlines policy related to online learning;
- The Online Learning for Students website provides information on what to expect in online classes for students.
- The Centers for Instruction and Technology on each campus, managed by IT, provide computers, specialized software, and locations for training on technology.
