Question asked from the floor by Dr. John White, FA President:
Do online courses really cost more than in-person courses? If not, why do we still charge online fees for students?
Answered from the floor by Dr. Simon Rhodes, Provost and VP of Academic Affairs:
no fees are charged to Remote Instruction courses but only Distance Learning courses.
Answered from the floor by Dr. Daniel Moon, Professor Academic Affairs Administration:
Dr. Moon confirmed these remarks and noted that, yes, DL courses do cost more than in-person courses insofar as the complex layer of resources that such courses require, e.g., CIRT staff who train faculty and work through technology logistics, funding provided to colleges for DL support (DL coaches and hardware).
