Faculty, course developers, and course redevelopers must meet minimum training requirements before beginning work for the Regents Online Campus Collaborative. Training sessions provide an overview of guidelines and best practices in online teaching, plus tools available in the learning management system. Courses and professional development sessions are offered in online and traditional classroom settings.

Faculty Training

All new instructors must complete an online Faculty Orientation (Part 1) and Introduction to Tools (Part 2) within the learning management system. Course access will not be given until training is completed prior to the beginning of the semester.

Each faculty member will be enrolled into the Regents Online Faculty Orientation course. Once faculty members have gone through the course materials, they must pass a 20 question multiple-choice assessment with a score of 100%. Multiple attempts are allowed.

If the faculty member has been assigned to teach a course(s), the faculty member will be subsequently enrolled into the section to which he/she is assigned by the campus. Access to semester sections occurs approximately 10 days prior to the first day of the semester.

Training Registration

Course Developer Training

All developers, newly appointed developers, and redevelopers must attend a two-day training session that is typically held in Nashville, TN several times throughout the year. Access to the course shell will not be given until the training is completed.

Course developers or redevelopers must take refresher training if course development has not begun in six months from the date of approval. Your Campus Distance Education Coordinator will recommend you for this training.
