Blank DL Regulations Faculty Survey - Fall 2012

Executive Summary of DL Regulations Survey - Fall 2012

In the fall of 2012, the Distance Learning Committee sent out a Distance Learning Regulations Faculty Survey. We greatly appreciate the number of responses we received. Out of 168 DL faculty, 58 faculty completed the survey.

We have created an Executive Summary of the results of the survey and would like to share this with you. Above is a link for the blank survey questions and the Executive Summary complied from the results sent in.

We received excellent information from this survey and intend to use the results to help improve Mt. SAC's DL compliance via various
methods including the creation of a new workshop, informing faculty on where to get help with captioning, creating examples of DL courses that comply with regulations, and providing faculty with more information on regulations as they apply to Distance Learning courses.

Distance Learning Committee Reports
 

 

Retention and Success of Regular vs. Online and Hybrid Courses
Fall 2001 through Spring 2008   (click here for full document
 

"This report compares the retention and success rates of online, hybrid, and regular classes from fall 2001 through spring 2008. The study compared equivalent classes offered via distance learning with traditional on-campus classes offered in the same term. Traditional courses are considered regular (i.e., on-campus, in a classroom setting). Online courses deliver the majority of content via the Internet, while hybrid courses utilize a combination of in-class and online instruction.  

Data for this study were compiled from ICCIS via the data warehouse for fall 2001 to spring 2008. Courses that had at least one hybrid and/or online section were selected for the analyses and then, compared to equivalent courses offered on campus in the same term. Regular courses were included only for the terms when an equivalent distance learning course was offered. Retention and success rates were calculated by course type (method of instruction) for all terms."

"In order to determine the retention [1] and success [2] rate of online [3] versus hybrid [4] courses, data were examined from fall 1999 through summer 2001 [5]. If the course was also taught as a regular class [6], then it was also included in the analyses.
