Developing Distance Learning Courses
Fully Online Courses
Fully online indicates that no on-campus class time is scheduled. However, proctored testing may still be required.
- Proctored Testing Guidelines
- A fully online course must be approved by Kent State Stark administration and your Kent department. That is, just because you want to teach it does not mean that you will get to teach it.
Hybrid indicates that on-campus class time is regularly scheduled but a minimal of 50% of the course is online.
- A hybrid course must be approved by Kent State Stark administration.
- Online courses are expected to maintain the same enrollment capacity as on-campus courses.
- Online course teachers should anticipate that preparation for these courses is very intense.
- Make sure you take advantage of your colleagues' experience, as well as Katie Baer, our educational designer, before you begin preparing for a course.
- Thoroughly explore Kent State's Distance Learning website for detailed information before developing a course.
Distance Learning Agreement
- The Distance Learning Agreement should be addressed between the instructor and the administration when preparing for a new online course.
