Question: What is required to teach online?


Answer:

All Daytona State College faculty have access to an online resource, more specifically our Learning Management System (LMS), for sharing their course materials with students, keeping grades, facilitating discussions and administering assessments. Every college credit course automatically has an empty shell available within the LMS. Students will automatically be enrolled and given access to the course materials posted by the instructor.

To get started using the LMS you will need to complete a series of workshops. All faculty should complete LMS100 through LMS103. Those who wish to teach online courses will need to complete LMS104 and LMS105 (see Table 1). To begin, login to the system and visit the LMS Academy to proceed with Writing for Electronic Media (LMS100). For more information on accessing the system visit the LMS portal page.
