Committee on Online Learning (COOL)

Charge and Charter of the Committee - What We Do

What We Do: The COOL  supports all of our College (faculty, staff, administration, and students) as we develop and deploy hybrid and fully online courses. We encourage and assist in the creation of new online courses, helping to ensure they can incorporate proven pedagogical techniques for student success, and that they can be delivered with the highest quality possible. And with that process, we help to reinforce how hybrid and online courses are equivalent in rigor, expectations, and student participation to their on-campus counterparts. We share our expertise in online delivery modes with all faculty, in a collaborative review process that includes demonstrations by colleagues new to the world of online teaching and learning. We evaluate, share, and advocate for new technologies that help our students learn.    

A primary focus of the COOL is to meet Title 5 Section 55206 regulations, which require separate course approval for distance education delivery courses. The regulations state that If any portion of the instruction in a proposed or existing course or course section is designed to be provided through distance education in lieu of face-to-face interaction between instructor and student, the course shall be separately reviewed and approved according to the district’s adopted course approval procedures. For more details on these separate approval requirements, visit our FAQ or Resources pages.
