Proposal Abstract

In order to address the diverse needs of today’s students, various forms of course delivery methods are required to accommodate students’ learning needs. In the Learning Support Mathematics courses at Columbus State University, we have implemented different course design delivery methods that incorporate distance learning models. The implementation of this study has enabled us to collect data and evidence about the effectiveness of varied distance learning delivery method for curriculum development purposes through the use of grades, teacher observations and a comparison of students’ performance in core mathematics courses and mathematical related major courses. These implementations have also met the needs of our active and retired military who heavily populate this area. A comparison will be made of the techniques, experiences, applications and data that are being utilized in the different formats. Topics discussed will include logistics, online resources, forms of assessment, curriculum development and indications of a review of the results.
