Distance Education Components in all Courses

Starting Summer and Fall 2013, the U.S. Department of Education and the Higher Learning Commission are requiring universities to track the number of students who are enrolled in classes where a portion of the content is delivered using distance education modes of delivery.  In addition, the Kansas Board of Regents is requiring K-State to report more detail on the use of distance education methods of content delivery in lieu of “in person” instruction for all classes.  

Due to these new requirements, information will be gathered from faculty on the portion of class content delivered through online, web-based, or other remote telecommunications modes for each course section they teach.  Class schedulers are also being trained on the new process and guidelines. 

See the new Guidelines for Determining the Distance Education Components of Courses page for details.
