Committee On Online Learning (COOL)


It is the charge of the COOL to support faculty in online/hybrid course delivery ventures and development of course delivery plan proposals. Faculty interested in teaching a course in online/hybrid delivery can view the complete Online/Hybrid Course Proposal Process.

Quick Reference:

What's New?

As COOL is changing its proposal approval process, please note that this semester is the last semester where faculty new to teaching online/hybrid at Chabot College can submit a proposal and conduct an online course demonstration all in one term and be approved for a course to be offered the following term (Spring 2015).

After this semester, new online/hybrid faculty must submit a written proposal two semesters prior to their courses offered, and complete the online course demonstration one semester prior to the course being offered. Note that this change only applies to new online/hybrid faculty without any prior approved online course proposals at Chabot College. 

Because of this change, there will be another proposal submission deadline later this term for new online/hybrid faculty for courses to be offered Summer/Fall 2015:

  • Proposal deadline to your dean: Monday, November 3, 2014
  • Proposal deadline from dean to COOL: Friday, November 7, 2014.

So if you are new to online/hybrid and wish to offer courses in the online or hybrid modality, you should start working on your proposal now for courses to be offered in Summer/Fall 2015.

For faculty who have received prior approval ("Fast-Track Faculty"), the proposal deadline for Summer/Fall 2015 online/hybrid courses to the deans from faculty will be approximately the 4th week of the Spring 2015 semester, similarly to the current timeline.
