6:
Why did you choose this textbook? It has CD Rom Videos and Mathxl

tutorial

7:
Does the textbook have a dedicated site? If so, do you use it
in the class? Yes. The tutorial is optional, but I
plan to use it more when AW converts it to My Math Lab

8: What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning
class? Do you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook?
Supplements mentioned above and I use learning materials that I have
written and mini lectures. I have used the materials for many years and
continually update the packets. I have subdivided the material in "bite-sized"
units for use with my on-line course.

9: Why
do you teach a class via distance learning? I always wanted to try this mode
of instruction and I do enjoy the opportunity to design a course in a
different learning environment. Additionally, it provides me with flexibility
because I am involved with many committees, etc. on campus.

10: What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you
paid for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not?
I received no compensation for developing the course, which took me at 300 hours
initially to develop. If I didn't have the learning materials available
to me, it would have taken twice that long. For teach the course, I
am paid the same as if it were taught on campus. Last semester, I spend
twice as long on my distance-learning course as I did teaching one on
campus.

11: What
is the quota for your distance learning classes? Class limits are the
same as on campus 15 -1 7 students.

12: How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? This is a noncredit
course, competency based. All exams
are given unproctored on-line with the exception of the departmental
final. To pass the course, students need a grade of 80% on each of 5
exams and an 80% on the final. They come to campus for the final or if
they live at a great distance, they have an acceptable proctor. Last semester,
all of my students who did well on their online exams, did just as well
when I gave them the proctored final.

class? Yes, no

8: What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook? CD that comes
with lessons, exercises and quizzes

9: Why do you
teach a class via distance learning?

10: What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you paid
for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not? Pat Keeler
developed the course, I get paid for an evening class (adjunct rate) It's
considered overload

11: What is
the quota for your distance learning classes? 12 - 18

12: How do
you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? 3 exams online and 3 Proctored
plus a final that they have to pass to pass the class

of Course: : Algebra and Trigonometry II

Method
of Distance Learning: Internet

Name
of Textbook: Basic Technical Mathematics

Why
did you choose this textbook? We wanted consistency with the book used for the same
course in the traditional on campus course offering.

Does
the textbook have a dedicated site? If so, do you use it? No

What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook? None

Why
do you teach a class via distance learning? Our Computer Info Services
Dept wanted to offer as many of the required courses for their degree
online and Math 102 is one of those courses. Our department was
invited to develop a course for this purpose and I volunteered.

What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you paid
for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not? I was
compensated with a one-time payment of $2000 for developing
the course. It has been offered a number of semesters but
has only run twice. When it runs, it is either part of
my load, or if it is above my normal load, then I am paid the same as any other overload
course.

What
is the quota for your distance learning classes? 10 students

How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? Weekly quizzed are given
online and unproctored. (Honor system) The Midterm and Final were
proctored and given on paper for those students who live close enough to come
to campus, which was all except one student. For the long distance student, I
faxed the exam to him, he took it unproctored, and faxed it back.
Again this required a certain amount of trust on my part.

Name
of Course: : Mat 129 - Statistics

Method
of Distance Learning: Using WebCT for the primary delivery. I have a web site I
use for files that are too much of a nuisance to put into WebCT (some power
point presentations that
came with the text book). The web site also serves as a "backup" in case there ever are problems with the WebCT server.

Name
of Textbook: Statistics - Picturing the World by Larsen and Farber

Why
did you choose this textbook? I'm an adjunct and the full time folk
are using this. But it's a great book for supporting a

distance
learning class.

Does
the textbook have a dedicated site? If so, do you use it? Yes. Not
really. It doesn't give a lot of stand-alone
materials that I think are useful.

What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook? Usual
supplements. There are WebCT and BlackBoard modules; I do not use the
WebCT module.

Why
do you teach a class via distance learning? a) For the experience since I
have a "day job" supporting distance learning faculty

b)
An opportunity to 'teach' statistics that allows me flexibility.
My day job is busy enough that I really don't have the time for a
face-to-face class.

What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you paid
for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not? No
compensation for developing an on-line course. Pay for
delivery is the same as a face-to-face course.

What
is the quota for your distance learning classes? Same as face-to-face courses.

How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? Quizzes are on-line and
open book; they can be re- taken as many times as the student would like to
take them. Exams are on-line, one time only and are open book.

I
always gave open book exams in a face-to-face class, so this is not a change
for me.

**College:
Monroe Community College**** **

Name
of Course: : MTH 160 Statistics I

Method
of Distance Learning: Lotus Notes

Name
of Textbook: Elementary Statistics, 8th edition by Johnson/Kuby

Why
did you choose this textbook? Use this textbook for all of my on campus courses.

Does
the textbook have a dedicated site? If so, do you use it? It has a
website, but I do not use it in the class.

What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook? A
Student's Solution Manual is available. Students purchase their
textbooks shrink-wrapped with. Minitab and CyberStats (an interactive
web-based software).

Why
do you teach a class via distance learning? I started using CyberSTats in
the classroom and thought
that it would work very well in an online environment. There was also a
need for more sections of online Statistics, so I developed a course using the
above components.

What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you paid
for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not? I did
not receive any compensation because MCC already had a person develop a
Statistics I course (even
though mine is different - that is the policy).

What
is the quota for your distance learning classes? around 30 students

How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? They have open book
online quizzes and projects for each section. Each student's project is
different enough due to the data selected. The final exam is comprehensive
(not open book) and they must either come to MCC to take the exam or
provide a proctor at a specified
site (all of which must be approved by me beforehand).

Name of Course: : Intermediate Algebra

Method
of Distance Learning: Online - SLN

Name
of Textbook: Intermediate Algebra a Graphing Approach(Martin-Gay)

Why
did you choose this textbook? This is the text we use in our other
Intermediate Algebra sections. We continue to use it because
of its good explanations.

Does
the textbook have a dedicated site? If so, do you use it? Yes - I use it
a little. The site is more of a practice quiz and real data kind of site.

What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook? There is
a web-based streaming video site that the publisher has said they will give me
access to. I have not done so as of yet. That is a summer project for me.

My
students are expected to purchase a TI-83 (like our other
students) and the TI-Graphlink (not purchased by on campus students)

I
also require these students to buy the student solutions manual.

09
Why teach:

1)
I like that it makes my time more flexible.

2)
I think it is important to stay current in my field and one way to stay current
is to use the available technology.

3)
I guess you can say I like a challenge.

What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you paid
for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not? I
will put this in the US Mail to you Jodi. It has several pages.

What
is the quota for your distance learning classes? Math courses are set at 20 the
first time you teach and 25 after that.

How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? Open book - open note -
etc.

I
try to develop some questions that can only be completed if the student participated in the classroom
discussions. Also - I often use multiple versions of exams so that direct copying
is less likely.

Also
- a large enough quantity of points are given for discussions so that students must participate to be
successful. I try to make it so that no one would want to do the work for their friend unless they were being paid
dearly for it.

*Intermediate
Algebra* by Charles McKeague

6.
The textbook is especially well suited for independent study. The
solutions to problems are written in detail. There are margin exercises
corresponding to each example. The videotapes are very well done.
There is a CD ROM, which comes with the textbook as a tutorial.

7.
I do not believe that the textbook has a dedicated site.

8.
There are videotapes, a CD ROM, and a student's solution manual. I
encourage students to use all of these. There are no other supplements
that I use.

9.
I teach a distance learning class because it gives me a break from my other
classroom sections where I lecture most of the time. It is a nice change
of pace. It also gives students who would not be able to register for a
classroom section an opportunity to complete the course in an alternative way.

10.
I do not teach an on-line course. I am not certain that math can be
effectively taught on a computer in isolation. One of the hallmarks of
the distance-learning program at Rockland is that we have a math lab dedicated
to distance learning students with three VCR's so that students may watch the
videos right here in the lab. I am also available for tutoring in
person. I also make sure that I am available one evening a week for
students who work full-time during the day. I consider math to be a
"foreign language." Students must learn the notation, symbols,
and syntax. The best way to master these (as when learning a new
language) is to talk to someone about them in person. I am compensated at
the same rate that I am paid for my other courses. A three-credit
distance-learning course would be counted as three credits of my load. I
believe that this is fair and equitable. I did not receive any
compensation for developing the course. I believe that I used the same
amount of time to set the distance learning section up as I did to prepare for
a lecture course that I was teaching for the first time.

11.
The course enrollment limit for this course is 25 students per semester.
A section of the course is also offered over the summer. I find that 25
is an appropriate number of students. I keep a "portfolio" for
each student. It contains their exams, e-mails, etc.

12.
All exams must be taken in the Testing Center at the College. A photo ID
is required. The exams are closed book. No calculators are
allowed. There is a full-time proctor in the Testing Center.

Yes
it does. No I do not.

8: What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook?

The
solutions manual and the CD’s I had packaged with the text. I use power point slides that I am creating
for each section.

9: Why
do you teach a class via distance learning?

I
thought it would be challenging and creative and I think more and more students
are learning using this medium.

10: What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you
paid for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not?

Currently,
for two semesters of development of a particular course faculty are paid an
extra stipend as long as the faculty person uses blackboard and attends the
training upfront. Nothing extra is paid
for teaching the course itself.

11: What
is the quota for your distance learning classes?

Quota
is 20.

12: How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other?

I
give 6 quizzes over the internet and students may drop their lowest grade. Students come to campus for their midterm
and final or to a designated off-campus spot with an approved proctor.

6:
Why did you choose this textbook? I have used both books in my traditional
courses. The Rosen text has an accompanying web site with resources
helpful to myself and to the students.

7:
Does the textbook have a dedicated site? Yes mentioned above. If so, do you
use it in the class? I do not access the internet during class.

8:
What supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning
class? Just the website. Do you use other supplements that do not come
with your textbook? No.

9:
Why do you teach a class via distance learning? I wanted to try it. I thought
that things would progress in this direction and I had better get some
experience. There are some nice aspects such as small class size and
a piece of equipment we call the "Elmo". This is a wonderful document
camera. I use it extensively. We use a TI86 frequently in upper
level courses and in the Finite Math. The Elmo allows teaching the
calculator usage easily. I can zoom in to the calc screen or zoom out to
show the students the buttons I am pushing. I also use the Elmo to view
documents such as prepared lecture notes and like a white board to go
over homework. I love the Elmo. We now have a picture within a picture
feature so that students can see me while we are using the Elmo.
I think that this is vital. The reduced human contact experienced
by students at the remote sites gives them a marked disadvantage.

10:
What compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? 3 credits
of release time the semester prior to implementation. How are
you paid for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or
not? Same.

11:
What is the quota for your distance learning classes? I don't understand
the question.

12:
How do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? Same as traditional,
closed book and proctored at remote sites by professional assistants.
I proctor the remote sites as well, since I can see the class via
the monitors. One nice aspect is that every desk has a microphone.
I can hear a pin drop.

8:
What supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning
class? Do you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook?
There is a test course cartridge that I use for practice and chapter
on line quizzes. Also there were very weak power point slides

which
I have supplemented. There are videos that no one has asked to use but I
have made available in the library. The only other supplement to the
course is the math lab on campus. I have several students that come to the
lab for help.

9:
Why do you teach a class via distance learning? I wanted to try a new way
of presenting the course. Our college has an incentive for the first 2
semesters of teaching a course with a commitment for 2 more semesters.

10:
What compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are
you paid for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or
not? We should be compensated $3500 for 2 semesters of development.

11:
What is the quota for your distance learning classes? 20

12:
How do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? I am giving Online
quizzes for each chapter - they are timed and I have asked the students
not use their book. I require written homework every week which is
submitted as an email attachment, faxed, mailed or dropped off at my
office. I require, over the semester, 4 of 5 projects to be worked on
as a group or as individuals. I have an on-campus or proctored off-campus
-- midterm and final.

class size, 2/3 of the regular class size -- for my course, 22.

12: How do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? I give Problem
Sets. I would like to require an in-person/proctored Final Exam, but the
dean says DE is DE and there should be no need for in-person exams. The
problem sets are open book, open notes.

All exams for this class are open book. My exams also
include some type of short research paper and investigations that go beyond
what I would put on the exam if it were taught on campus. I also give reading quizzes
that are on-line that are open book, these cover the reading material in the
textbook.

I like the supplements and dedicated website that go with this text. The
website has power point presentations (which will be on CD for the new edition
in the fall) and on-line quizzes that I have students take and send to me. Help
on Minitab and graphing calculators are also available on the website.

it.

We use this text on campus.

Does
the textbook have a dedicated site? If so, do you use it? Yes. I do use
it for my class. It has on-line quizzes, but I do not like them and have
written my own in the class. These are open book and over the reading material
from each section. It also has homework starters using Live Math. I have linked
out to these from my class.

What
supplements are available with your textbook for a distance learning class? Do
you use other supplements that do not come with your textbook? Student
Solutions Manual. We also use Derive. Students are required to have access to it
on a campus or buy Derive themselves.

Why
do you teach a class via distance learning? Initially, for the laptop! :)
This was my first on-line class. It sounded like a challenge and I took it!
I now like the fact that students can take the class who has a difficult time
getting to campus.

What
compensation do you receive for developing an on-line course? How are you paid
for teaching an on-line course, same as an on-campus class or not? Same
as for the others I have mentioned.

What
is the quota for your distance learning classes? 22

How
do you give exams? Open book? Proctored? Other? All exams are proctored.
I have on-line reading quizzes that are open book.
