Form D distance learning COURSE OUTLINE SUPPLEMENT
Course: MATH 232 Hybrid
Course Title: Math 232 distance education
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. [Tile V & 55206]
Address the following questions: A. Need/Justification 1. What is the intent in offering the course by distance education? To provide alternatives for students who might not otherwise be able to achieve their educational objectives. To increase the number of mathematics classes offered online. To provide a segway for students who are taking or have taken their beginning/intermediate algebra classes online.
14 of 17
5/25/09 2:05 PM
course
To encourage/promote technology competence by both student and instructor. To offer a transferable math course online. 2. How will learning be enhanced by the use of distance Education Technology? The field of Statistics has drastically changed with computers. Computer-generated statistical applications are continually being added to the toolbox that is statistical method. Virtually no one applies statistics by hand; it is all done by computer in the real world. Letting a computer do the calculations allows the student to figure out which procedure is appropriate and why, and what the results mean. Almost every student will need to apply statistics in some way in their field of study. B. Methods of Instruction: Instructor-Student Contact. Regular Effective Contact Contact with the instructor is to have four forms. Please indicate the type and number of instructor-student contacts per semester.
a. E-Mail Communication: Individual Chatroom Bulletin Board Listserve FAQs b. Telephone Contacts c. Orientation Sessions (in Person) d. Group Meetings (In Person) e. Review Sessions (In Person) f. Other (Describe)
12-18 0-18 0-18 5-8 0-18
Describe why you feel these forms of contacts will be effective: Many students, especially our younger students are extremely technology savvy and would prefer learning by computer. These students gain most of their information by internet, texting and other types of technology and will be very comfortable in the online format. Describe how you will identify and respond to students experiencing difficulty: Students with low homework, quiz and/or Test Scores can be immediately identified and supported. Students can be referred to the MyStatLab online program for teaching videos, practice questions, and 24-hour support by email and phone. There are also many math support websites online that may be utilized. 2. Hours for Content Delivery and Interaction. Please show the approximate hours anticipated for student activities. 72 hours/student/semester 3. Assignments: Describe Student Assignments.

Textbook reading assignments (also available online). MyStatLab homework, quizzes and exams. Minitab lab assignments. Chat room/blackboard participation.
For this course what are the total hours of work expected of the student beyond the hours of Content Delivery and Interaction? 144 hours 4. Methods of Evaluation: Describe how you will evaluate students. Online homework, quizzes and exams. Lab projects/assignments. 5. Technical Support: What equipment and staff are necessary to support the course (for students and faculty)? Is it already available? A computer lab and computer support are necessary to support the course. It is available. 6. Instructional Materials and Resources: Describe how you will provide students with access to instructional materials and resources The student will purchase a textbook bound with MyStatLab and Minitab statistical software. All other resources will be online. 7. Student Services Describe how you will provide students with access to admissions, registration, counseling and financial aid services. Students can e-mail or telephone to request an application, or they may apply online. Students taking only online classes may mail or fax the registration form. The form can be downloaded from the schedule information on the college website. Counseling services will be available by e-mail. The financial aid application is online. Complete information about types of aid available and phone numbers/e-mail addresses for NVC's financial aid office can be found on the college website; www.napavalley.edu.
Accommodations for students with disabilities. Describe how you will accommodate students with disabilities. Courses will be checked through BOBBY, or a similar program, that is a comprehensive web accessibility software tool designed to help expose and repair barriers to accessibility and encourage compliance with existing accessibility guidelines
8. Additional Resources: Are additional resources/or secretarial support needed or anticipated to teach by distance learning? No.
