Faculty Focus Special Reports

New U.S. Department of Education regulations went into effect on July 1, 2021 to distinguish distance education from correspondence courses, which have financial aid restrictions. The main difference between these two modalities is that a distance education course requires regular and substantive interaction between the instructor and the students. This tip sheet defines regular and substantive interaction and provides tips for how to improve teacher-student interaction in your distance education course.


As we are bound by MUS policies, please visit the UMOnline page on RSI for more information.
