13 CHALLENGES * GE Classes – Move to increase number of online GE classes in all areas. * Need to provide continuity of DL offerings through the strategic offering plan in each department. * Need to offer about 50 curriculum-approved courses (including already approved 11 GE classes). * Need to address DL needs college-wide: Current faculty contract needs to be updated with DL matters. Establish faculty mentorship for LBCC instructors who are new to DL. * Need to increase DL offerings to meet student demand: 54% of students surveyed* would have pursued an online degree if offeredsurveyed Number of unduplicated headcount is down in Fall ‘10 compared to Fall ‘ DL plan background DLPImpOS task force Online classes and enrollment data Student demographics Achievements Challenges Where we are

14 Towards a college within the college – elements: Full online degrees & certificates Online honor classes Large offerings of GE online classes Strategic offering plan for each Department Marketing DL classes beyond our immediate area Where we are headed -9-

15 Strategies to meet the challenges at no extra cost: Earmark resources for DL classes in each department. Priority offering of online classes that are included on any GE plan in all areas. Addressing Contractual DL Matters and other proven successful practices. Examples: * Update faculty contract to include DL matters * Reduced Teaching Unit load in exchange for faculty professional development in teaching and developing online classes. * College service & Flex credit for faculty engaged in mentoring faculty who are new to DL and other related FPD activities listed on the DL plan. * Include DL in new faculty orientation.
