Distance Education Scheduling Methodology (DESM)

DVC Innovation Accepted Proposal, 2015

Project description: 

Develop a database to show which DVC programs and certificates are online, how many required and elective classes within the programs and certificates are online, and which classes within the IGETC and CSU transfer agreements are online within the DVC searchable schedule. 

Once this database is developed and available for website searching:

  • Students will be able to more easily determine which classes are online and thus be able to see that they could complete these classes online.
  • DVC department chairs and division deans will more easily understand how much of a program or certificate is online and which gaps in online class offerings exist.
