CS Online Teaching
Proposal for minimum standards and requirements for CS online courses.
- Oversite - Include director of CS in the blackboard site and any other systems, as a student.
- Email - Reply to emails within 24 hours during the work week, within 48 hours otherwise.
- Discussion - Use some discussion system where students can post questions, answer each other’s questions, and the instructor can do the same.
- Course management template - Use the CS course management template (blackboard, syllabus, anything else that is included) that the CS faculty have agreed on.
- Lecture content - lecture content (asynchronous videos and/or synchronous) must be at least half as many hours as the total # of lecture-credit-hours (½ of 45, for a 3 credit hour course).
- Assignments - assignments are well documented in text, and proper solutions and hints are demo’ed (either by a video demo, good powerpoint, etc.).
- Final exam - is proctored by the university-standard proctoring service.
- Phone - talk on the phone/skype/etc. with each student at least once.
- Content and assignments - cover the same content and use the same types of assignments as the face-to-face version of the course.
- Regular schedule - decide during the first week of classes what the regular schedule will be for the course and stick with it. Preferred - pick two days per week when assignments can be due, and give at least 48 hours notice before any due date. Preferred - pick a few different times per week to hold live-chat office hours (using some live-text-chat system).
- Absence - notify students and department when you will be absent from the normal course schedule (not available for email, not delivering content on normal schedule, etc.).
- Grading turnaround - items graded within 1 week of due date.
- CS policies - abide by all standard CS course policies
- Abide by university guidelines
