To ensure the highest quality of online instruction at Coastal Carolina University, our comprehensive Distance Learning Policy articulates specific expectations intended to maximize the academic performance of online learning students and to guide faculty in best practices for design and support of their online learning classes. In addition to the DL Policy, the campus has formed a Distance Learning Committee to ensure quality and consistency in all online learning environments, curricula, and related initiatives. The committee recommends appropriate resouces, including technology, services, and professional development to support distance learning.
The Coastal Office of Online Learning has also developed a faculty learning community (FLC), the Digital and Open Learning Community, open to any part-time or full-time faculty member beginning in Spring 2020 and running through Spring 2021. Within the scope of this Digital and Open Learning FLC and over the course of the SP20-SP21 timeframe, FLC participants will work collectively to develop presentations and/or publications focused on furthering the knowledge within the digital learning arena.
