Distance Education Handbook

The purpose of the Austin Community College (ACC) Distance Education Faculty Handbook is to ensure high quality in the delivery of distance education with regard to instruction and procedures. Austin Community College approaches distance education activities from the recognition of its mission to promote student success and community development by providing affordable access to higher education and workforce training in its service area, through traditional and distance education modes.

The Distance Education Faculty Handbook is maintained by the Office of Distance and Alternative Education with input from the College-wide Distance Education Committee. The Distance Education Faculty Handbook will contain guidelines and procedures for the design, development, delivery, and assessment of distance education courses and programs, consistent with AR and G/P AR 5.0201.01. Requests for changes and additions to the Handbook by faculty and staff should be made to the chair of the Distance Education Committee.
