SCC Rules



Student Capacity in Online Curriculum Courses Rule

Approved By and Date:Executive Leadership Team
 ICORE02-18-2010

 

All online courses at SCC will be limited to a maximum of twenty (20) students.  If additional students wish to enroll in the course the program head will consult with the dean/associate dean to determine if an additional section may be opened.  In unusual circumstances the dean may approve an override of the cap of 20 students; however, it is preferable to open a new course section when feasible.  Additional sections allow for more efficient management of the online course.

 

Often an instructor will simultaneously teach more than one section of the same course and may choose to combine the enrolled students from multiple sections into one course within Moodle in order to more efficiently manage grading and other instructional duties.  Though the students are combined into one course in Moodle they are still officially enrolled in separate sections and it is imperative for auditing purposes that each section be tracked and documented separately.  For proper course documentation the instructor must submit a separate tracking sheet and separate printed official roster for each course section.  Moodle has a procedure for printing separate tracking sheets.  Within Moodle the tracking sheets are referred to as Access Reports.  In the Administration block on the course homepage click the Reports link, which will take the instructor to the Access Reports screen where links for accessing the tracking sheets in each of the individual courses are accessible.
