General Information about Online Learning at Carson-Newman

Purpose

The administration of Carson-Newman College recognizes the need to offer its students alternative learning formats which make college more accessible.  Offering online courses and programs are one way C-N meets time and technology demands of today’s traditional age and adult learning student.

Principles

  • Faculty are not required to teach in any online learning format, but all faculty are expected to use the C-N Online/E360 online course management system to deliver their syllabi.
  • The faculty is ultimately responsible for the integrity of online learning content and delivery.
  • Carson-Newman will provide the faculty with the necessary pedagogical and technological training needed to deliver quality online courses.
  • Curriculum content developed for online delivery must fit the online learning format and should have a defensible rationale for using such materials.
  • Class sizes for online learning will be appropriate to the curriculum needed to successfully deliver an effective and quality course.
  • Technical support for faculty and students will
    be available in a combination of web-based self-help tutorials and videos, self-paced
    orientation, email and telephone.
