Monthly Online DE Coordinators Meeting
Is that a new position?
Yes. Jay's postion is a new one
atomic jolt search - i received a quote for just our DE FTE at 0.61/fte
Thank you Micah.
Micah - was that through the Foundation contract?
Not clear what the goal of the the CVC grant is meant to accomplish from the info sent out last week.
And does “just DE FTE” mean that the tool would only be available in your DE classes? Or it’s in all of your Canvas but pricing only on the DE FTE?
@jim, we asked for two quotes- one for all FTE which would allow for a global search across courses and one for our DE courses where the search is integrated at the course level
the full FTE quote was 0.52/FTE
Gotcha thanks Micah. Will be interesting to see how your quotes compare with the Foundation deal
That’s a great thing about these meetings!
I've started asking for sub-account quotes as well and more companies seem to be willing to offer them.
I can't find Atomic Jolt in College Buys. Is it supposed to be available?
@Judy - you might reach out to Barbara Illowski directly. Maybe it's still in the works
Is there a more in-depth description of what “regular and substantive interaction among students” really means? That is a new one on me to think is worthy of legal regulation ...
@Jim The 2008 Omnibus on DE guidelines needs to be updated so this may be a place for those details.
But the reference to 55204(a) of Title 5 doesn’t make much sense in terms of student-student interaction, the way the recommended insertion of “and among students” has been made in 55206
Radhika Prout, https://email@example.com
A couple of other links from my notes
I’m curious if there was any discussion of updating 55204(a) along with the 55206 recommendations.
??? Erin, who has to sign if a district submits? Is Academic Senate sig is needed?
@Jim - I can't remember specifically, but we can check and get back to you
@Dan - sign what?
Thanks Lisa. I can’t see how “and among students” could be inserted in 55206 without also changing 55204(a)
@Lisa - the RFA response.
Aha - we'll ask Erin after her presentatio
Lisa, note also that 55204(a) also still uses the “regular effective contact” phrase, so it would be great if 55206 was updating that to match the federal/accreditation language, it would also be updated in 55204(a)
Thanks @Jim. I'll bring this up at the next DEETAC. If you want to email me specific questions I can have that in hand during the conversation
we have a proposal for 55204 also.
CCC DECO, that’s good to know, is that something that can be shared? It seems really important to view the proposed 55206 changes in tandem with 55204 …
By ‘we’ I meant DEETAC.
And yes. I think we are ready to share. Will check with LeBaron for sure. - Joanna
Ok, thanks, Joanna.
Thanks for the update on the RFA, Erin. The current team from Foothill-De Anza intends to submit a robust response to continue building on the terrific collaboration and growth of the existing consortium. Just so everyone knows our team remains committed to shepherding this project for another 5 years if given the honor of doing so.
Thank you, @Jory. Glad to hear and we support the great work you're doing!
how can we learn more and make sure we are updated on the Cyber Security Program? We may be interested.
Can you post that link?
@Will - just hack into the system for updates! :-)
@Will - I'm not sure if it's still open, but I would recommend contacting Erin/LeBaron directly
@Dan - LOL
If you have an out-of-state teacher, you may need to have your HR department check to see if that instructor is covered by workers' comp or other payroll matters. Our district has decreed that we may not hire faculty from out of state, because Keenan (our workers' comp provider) won't insure them.
@Cathy - good point
What is going on with SARA and CA? I think we are the only state that is not a member.
@Will - correct
Where can we find the public disclosure information mentioned?
How do private colleges get around SARA? For example, Ca. students can take courses and receive degrees from out of state for-profit colleges.
Does anyone have an example of a web page telling students that the school is not accepting students from other states?
American River College has a statement.
@Dan - we have one on our DE site. If you'll email me I can send the link
@Judy ~ Late to the reply but Barbara did comment on contacting firstname.lastname@example.org about these new offerings in College Buys
Hi what I am iterested but I have zero experience?
@Dan - we have a page that tells WHICH states we have agreeements with and discusses this. Send me your email and I'll send you the link.
@Asma~ I would say that I find the issue very complex and would appreciate any willing represenative to volunteer :)
Where can we find that simulation from the Dept. of Finance?
Historically there have been some questions about funding for distance ed FTES based on the attendance accounting method used. Is this, then addressed, if an FTES funded for Face to face versus DE is going to be the same? It’s an important piece to address.
So the 17.5 term length multiplier still be in effect.
Yes, that would be very helpful
Thanks, Bob…yes, that’s the issue
That may be another DEETAC recommendation :)
Melissa Colon-Columbia College
Thank you everyone! Have a great weekend!
thanks for the efficient facilitation and great meeting
