OULN COURSE MATERIAL PLANNING
requires the distribution of handouts, quizzes and/or tests you will soon
realize paperwork distribution is one of the hardest challenges
to overcome in a distance learning environment. However, with proper planning and adequate time management, together we can bridge the
gap created by the physical distance between you and your students.
Instructors are responsible for preparing course material
for their home campus students.
Staff can assist you with distribution to and from your other sites.
any time, OULN Staff may be away from their offices expectedly or unexpectedly.
After an appropriate amount of time, should you not receive a response from
the staff member you are intending to contact, it would be advisable to contact
the HELP DESK 740-597-2934.
course documents can be posted to your site.

FROM ATHENS - FedEx
Federal Express account has been issued to OULN through University Outreach
Campuses. This method of shipping is efficient and provides
a tracking number on each airbill. OULN business hours are Monday through
Friday, 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Emergencies happen, but, planning ahead
for shipping is expected from each instructor. All information and paperwork
should be given to your Athens contact two or more days in advance. Instructors,
you should have the appropriate number of copies prepared for each one
of your students prior to shipping. In Athens, your
contacts for distributing materials to the regional campuses are both Jessica
Makosky (740-593-4964) and Cindy Adams (740-593-0241).
SITUATIONS - Faxing
Each campus has access to a fax machine somewhere on their campus. This is a last resort and we would encourage
you try to avoid this method at all costs. When operators are busy faxing,
copying or scanning, they are not operating the class. Remember, operators
are available for technical support and are not Support Staff.
