Distance Learning at Stark Campus

Developing Distance Learning Courses

 
Fully Online Courses

Fully online indicates that no on-campus class time is scheduled. However, proctored testing may still be required.

  • Proctored Testing
  • A fully online course must be approved by Kent State University at Stark administration and your Kent department. That is, just because you want to teach it does not mean that you will get to teach it.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid indicates that on-campus class time is regularly scheduled but a minimal of 50% of the course is online.

  • A hybrid course must be approved by Kent State University at Stark administration.

Considerations
  • Online and hybrid courses are expected to maintain the same enrollment capacity as on-campus courses.
  • Online and hybrid instructors should anticipate that preparation for these courses is very intense.
  • Online and hybrid instructors should be comfortable using basic technology, including Blackboard tools. 
  • Online and hybrid instructors should begin designing new online courses a year in advance.
