“Launched in Spring 2017 at five pilot colleges, the Course Exchange component of the Online Education Initiative provides a seamless pathway for students to register for online courses across participating colleges without requiring students to complete separate matriculation processes. Through the Course Exchange, students who cannot get the courses they need at their home college are able to enroll in equivalent online courses from another college (teaching college) that has available seats. Students enroll via a streamlined registration process at their home college”

 OEI Course Design Rubric 

In preparation for acceptance into the OEI, the Committee on Distance Education (CoDE) and the Academic Senate has approved the use of the OEI Rubric as our DE course-measuring tool for OEI Courses, and an abridged version (consisting of Section B and D - areas that pertain to CA State Title IV ADA/508 Laws) of the OEI Rubric as our measuring tool for all DE course baseline Compliance Checks.

The OEI Course Design Rubric contains the online course design standards developed and adopted by the OEI. The Rubric is intended to establish standards relating to course design, interaction and collaboration, assessment, learner support, and accessibility in order to ensure the provision of a high-quality learning environment that promotes student success and conforms to existing regulations.

In the development of these standards, the OEI team had access to significant work already undertaken in this area by @ONE, the CCC Distance Education Coordinator’s group, the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC), and the CCC Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) along with a variety of other local college and nationally established standards.
