Course Syllabus – Grade Appeal Statement

DCCC instructors should make sure that they have the following blurb regarding Grade Appeal on their course syllabus within the Academic Integrity Policy Page:

Final Course Grade Appeal
Students are encouraged to discuss their progress in the course throughout the semester and should discuss any concerns they have regarding grades on assignments with the instructor. On occasion, circumstances may arise in which  a student should have the opportunity to appeal the final course grade. If a student believes that the final course grade is inaccurate, the student should contact the faculty member who assigned the grade within five (5) business days of the posting of that semester’s grade. Please refer to the Final Course Grade Appeal Process in the General Catalog and Student Handbook. NOTE: Individual assignment/test grades are not appealable.

Welcome DCCC Distance Learning Instructors and Staff!

The purpose of this blog is to facilitate communication within the distance learning community at DCCC.  It is my hope that this site will become a collaboration of ideas and a vital tool to disseminate information among distance instructors and staff.  I will be making posts concerning critical DL (distance learning) materials and/or policies.  The person managing this blog site is Dori Stanfield, Coordinator of Instructional Technology and Distance Learning.  Please contact me at

Also, notice that there are two tabs called Blackboard Resources and Echo360 Room located above.  This is just the first of many tabs I will be creating.  The first tab is a compilation of all the Blackboard resources you have available to you as DCCC instructors and staff.  The second is a description of the new lecture capture room we have at DCCC and how you can use it.
