DL iconDistance Learning - Faculty Resources

Distance Learning (DL) is the official designation for online classes. Many professors use some online resources, but a course is only "DL" when actual seat time on campus is replaced with online requirements. When on-campus seat time is only partly replaced with online activities, it is a "hybrid" course. When class time is 100% online, the course is designated as an "online" class. 

Attention: DL courses must meet specific college, state, and federal requirements. The most important DL regulation is "regular and effective contact" with enrolled students. At Mt. SAC, faculty must qualify to teach DL courses through our certification process. Courses are submitted for approval through the Distance Learning Committee (DLC). These courses also have their own evaluation process. You will find the resources you need here!
