Instructors, Planning to Develop an Online Course?
For most online classes, 12-18 months is not too soon to begin development. Under normal circumstances, the application should be submitted at least 6 months before registration starts. The application involves getting signatures from department chairs, deans, and the Provost in case there are available funds or grants for course development, or a new course may help contribute to an existing online program.
The New Online Course Proposal is available here for download and print using MS Word.
Principles of Good Practice
All online courses offered at UT Permian Basin should comply with the Principles of Good Practice for Electronically Offered Academic Degree and Certificate Programs from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).
The UT Permian Basin Principles of Good Practice for Electronically-Based Course Checklist and Agreement form is provided for faculty to complete to demonstrate adherence to the Principles.
