Ecampus - OSU Policy on Electronic Delivery of Instruction
Electronically delivered instruction must be comparable in quality and content to the corresponding campus instruction. In order to ensure this objective, course and program proposals submitted for curriculum approval should demonstrate:
- that essential student services and course-related materials (books, journals, computer facilities, laboratories, and other resource material) are accessible at all receiving sites.
- that the instruction will provide appropriate amounts and types of interaction between students and instructors
- that appropriate methods will be used to assess students' achievement of the learning objectives.
- that fair and appropriate staffing policies have been adopted by the delivering unit as it relates to electronically delivered instruction.
- that the instruction is making appropriate use of currently available technologies.
- that the units proposing the electronically delivered instruction will describe a process for how and when the proposed courses and/or programs will be evaluated.
Electronically delivered courses and distance courses must be so identified within the OSU information database but will not be distinguished from normally delivered course work on a student's transcript.
