Course-Specific Online Orientations
Providing an orientation - either online or on-campus is important to student success. Distance Learning courses are offered in many different formats. There is a need to ensure consistency of information to all students, while customizing the online orientations for Distance Learning courses is essential. To this end, we developed a system to mix and match orientation content for specific media and delivery formats. We are using a learning object repository and list model, which facilitates dynamic presentation of orientation content.
Making the DeAnza College Introduction to Distance Learning Course-specific
DeAnza Distance Learning Course Formats
- Televised courses
- Live Televised courses
- De Anza produced Telecourses
- Commercially produced Telecourses
- Online / Web
Processing Quarter Updates
- 100+ classes
- First contact with students - many Distance Learning students do not take other classes at De Anza, most students have never taken a Distance Learning class previously
- Instructor course-specific information
- Classes with multiple media - for example, some Distance Learning classes use television and web-delivered course materials
- Orientation information by media type - for example, using a listserv requires special media specific instructions
- Set expectations for distance learning success - students who understand the need for self-discipline and regular study sessions tend to be successful in Distance Learning courses
- Student information gathering - confirmation of student contact immediately prior to class
- Completion verification - ensure that student reviewed orientation materials, and is prepared to participate fully when the class starts
- Usage tracking - for many classes, online orientation is an alternate to attending an on-campus orientation. For some courses, completion of the online orientation is manditory as a prerequisite to remain in the class after the registration period is over.

Records or content pages are almost complete web pages including HTML tags for formatting and page layout, but no HEAD or BODY tags. Each page is stored in the Filemaker database. Each page record has a unique ID number that is used to locate the page. The record fields include long and short titles, keywords, creation and modification dates.
- Page content
- HTML tags
- Update history
The lists are used to connect individual content pages. Pages are listed by page Id and ordered by sequence number.
The orientation engine provides the framework and presents the content pages in the sequence defined by the lists.
For each class, information is stored that determines which online orientation list/content to use, based on the following criteria.
For example, the class included live television and use of a listserv, the display program selects the appropriate orientation and displays it to students requesting online orientation for this class.
- Course information
- Instructor preferences
- Course media
- Orientation requirements
Tracking Students and Usage

- Orientation page views by student
- Post-test - student must demonstrate 80%+ to record completion
