Distance Learning Notes - July 19, 2006

Members present:  Linda Beith, Jaime Nash and JoAnn Warren

Working session to identify course content for the Distance Education Faculty Training.  Three major components were identified:  Creating a Virtual Classroom; Distributing Documents and Assessing Learning.

A WebCT course shell was created and existing files and links were migrated into the shell.

It is anticipated that this training program will be offered in the Spring 2007 for faculty who have an interest in teaching courses on-line.  Training duration:  2 weeks.  Combination of face-to-face and on-line. 

To prepare for this activity, three committee members (Linda Beith, Robert Melucci and JoAnn Warren) met with the Distance Learning Program Coordinators at U-MASS Dartmouth.
