In the absence of an instructor

Educational Learning Technologist is not responsible for the management or teaching of an online or a blended course in the absence of an instructor. Instructors are responsible for informing an ELT if they are planning to be away and unable to teach or provide instructional support to their class. In their absence instructors are responsible for the management, resetting attempts and grade delivery for all online assignments. In case of an emergency absence, an instructor must secure a written permission (email is fine) to inform and instruct an ELT to reset test submissions, selective releases to particular students or test rescheduling.

Class canceling

Instructors teaching video conferencing enabled classes must notify all students and ELT in advance. An ELT will notify appropriate staff members and ensure that campus resources are not wasted. If the class is canceled than that class time must be made up by:

•   additional BB assignments

•   rescheduling a class to another time
