Time on Task

Online courses focus on total time on task to mirror ‘seat time’ in traditional instruction and the conventional academic credit model (in which one college credit requires 15 hours of classroom time plus two additional hours of homework time per hour of classroom time). For example, time on task for viewing three, 15-minute lectures (text or video), with web links would equal 1 hr. Posting to discussions (original post, responses to three classmates’ posts, responses to responses) would equal 2 hours. Small group project meetings (web conference or asynchronous discussion) would equal 1 hour. The College’s Center for Learning Design, Innovation, and Online Instruction provides faculty with guidance on converting online learning activities to time on task to calculate equivalent hours to meet the requirements of the academic credit model. Students complete no less than three hours of equivalent work per credit per week in online courses.

Textbooks

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA) requires all institutions receiving federal financial aid to "publish," in time for registration, a list of all required and recommended books and other course materials for all classes offered at the institution.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property Rights

Copyright protection is automatic and begins when your work is permanently recorded. This means that you can't copyright your ideas, only the recorded product of your ideas. You are not required to include a copyright statement or register your copyright but there are advantages to doing so (needed if taking legal action, less appealing to plagiarism sites that upload faculty materials). The Library can provide assistance and resources on copyright rules and responsibilities.
