Regular attendance is expected of all ACC students. For distance education classes, this means students must satisfy the course’s orientation requirements, and keep up with course activities, assignments, and exams. Inform students of specific course policies in the syllabus. It is at your discretion to determine whether a student is meeting the course objectives and syllabus requirements.
If you have students on your roster who have not completed the orientation once the semester has started, or who are not keeping up with course activities, please submit an Early Intervention Request. The goal of the Early Intervention program is to connect with at-risk students as early in the semester as possible to increase their chances for success.
Faculty evaluations are conducted online each semester in conjunction with on-campus evaluations. [Evaluation Calendar]
During the evaluation window, you will be asked to notify your students that the evaluation is available in Online Services. Please provide them with the link to faculty evaluation instructions for distance education students.
The ACC Online website is a one stop shop for distance education students. They can go the student resources page for a list of helpful resources available to them. There is also a list of advisors and a counselor available to distance education students.
