When proposing new or revised programmes that include elements of distance learning (online or blended), the proposers are required to submit with the Stage 1 Proposal Form, a duly completed Distance Learning Programme Checklist detailed as Appendix D.
New study-units which involve blended or online modalities need to be sanctioned by the ESDEC, which is a joint sub-committee of the Digital Education Committee and the Programme Validation Committee. In such instances, Appendix B or Appendix C (as appropriate) of the Distance and E-learning Policy must be submitted together with the study-unit approval form.
Appendix B should be completed when converting up to 25% of an existing face-to-face study-unit to an online modality.
Appendix C should be completed when converting an existing face-to-face study-unit or a blended study-unit to a fully online study-unit.
