Information for Administrators
It takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work to put an online program or off-campus course together. If you play a role in that, the information below could be helpful to you.
The Administrative Procedures page outlines the steps to take in order to create a new DE program and to determine if a course is considered “distance education".
Distance Education Advisory Committee (DEAC)
The Distance Education Advisory Committee (DEAC) page lists the contact information for each member of DEAC, the TWU committee that provides advice on distance education hardware and software and reviews new degrees, certificates, and tracks delivered via distance technologies as well as policies and procedures related to distance education.
The Off-Campus Courses section provides information on what an off-campus course is and the course approval process.
Distance Education Snapshot
View the Spring 2021 Distance Education Snapshot Report [pdf]. This report contains information about the demographics of our distance learners as well as various comparisons of our DE population to TWU’s entire student body.
View the 2019 - 2020 Teaching and Learning with Technology Annual Report. This report will provide information on new staff members, state authorization, special programs and projects, COVID-19 response, universal design, campus involvement, and much more.
Administrators interested in creating new distance education programs must also understand the basics of state authorization. For more information, please visit the State Authorization page.
