New Federal Guidelines for Distance Learning Webinar

The U.S. Department of Education issued final rules on Distance Education and Innovation in September 2020 that went into effect July 1, 2021. The new regulations update the definitions of distance and correspondence education with the intent to provide more clarity on the differences between these two modes of course delivery. The Department of Education requires that all online courses in which students use Title IV financial aid funds include regular and substantive interaction between students and instructors.

To learn more, please attend the webinar “New Federal Guidelines for Distance Learning” via Microsoft Teams on Tuesday, March 22, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. or Wednesday, April 6, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. The sessions will provide an overview of the new regulations and provide resources for faculty members on how to ensure that their online and hybrid courses meet the new regulations. 

Please register through the Buffalo State College Workshop Registration System.
