According to CHSS Policy, courses due for re-review must successfully complete the re-review process in the same semester that they are due for re-review. To find out if you have a course coming up for re-review, click here: http://distancelearning.kennesaw.edu/approved_courses_faculty.php.

 

To assist faculty in complying with this college-level policy, all courses up for re-review must be submitted for re-review before the end of the first month of the semester in which the re-review must be completed. That is, courses with a re-review date of Spring 2017 must be submitted for re-review by the end of January, 2017. Noncompliant courses will be disassociated from their faculty developers at the end of the semester in which the re-review is due. The faculty member will not be allowed to teach the course until has been submitted for a full KSU QM Peer Review and met standards.

The following tutorial has been created to help faculty quickly complete the submission process.

Helpful Information Before You Start

Please note that the new version of the QM Rubric (2015) has a new, essential (required) standard. Instructors must include links to the accessibility policies of all technologies/materials/sites required in the course.

Here are the common ones you may need to insert on the syllabus:

VoiceThread: http://voicethread.com/about/features/accessibility/
Panopto: http://support.panopto.com/documentation/viewing/accessibility-features
Kaltura: http://corp.kaltura.com/sites/default/files/Datasheets/Kaltura%20Accessibility%20Datasheet.pdf
SoftChalk: http://softchalk.com/products/softchalk/accessibility
MS Office:http://www.microsoft.com/enable/products/office2013/default.aspx
YouTube: http://www.google.com/accessibility/all-products-features.html

If you are using third-party software or having students look at any websites, you will also need to include the accessiblility policies for each one.

You can find the updated "Start Here" templates at the following links:

MS Word: http://distanceed.hss.kennesaw.edu/elearning/StartHereSampleContent-1-audra_edits.docx

PowerPoint: http://distanceed.hss.kennesaw.edu/elearning/tutorials/StartHere.2015.pptx

You may also need to update your course and module goals to ensure that they are verifiable: http://distanceed.hss.kennesaw.edu/elearning/tutorials/VerifiableVerbs.pdf
