Welcome Offline Faculty Video

Welcome to the new semester! The Distance Education team would like to help ensure that the courses being taught at Taft Modified Community Correctional Facility (MCCF) run as efficiently as possible. As an instructor, you will have access to the Adjunct Office (T6-G) and copy rooms (G2 & Mail Room). These locations are used to make copies and to pick-up/drop-off course materials.

  • Contact the Office of Instruction (extension: 7919) in advance to arrange for a key for Adjunct Office in T6-G.
  • Contact IT Department (extension: 7737) for your badge and permissions so you can access G2, T6 Offices, and the Mailroom.

To ensure that educational materials reach students in a timely manner, please do the following:

(Suggested) By Friday January 15th 2021 (a Friday before the term begins), please

    • Review The Offline Faculty Toolbox and Complete all hyper-linked forms and steps. (Due to Covid-19 there are limitations on normal processes and procedures).
    • Provide enough copies of your syllabus for all enrolled students (+2 more copies for DE).
    • Provide no less than the first week of necessary course materials – for all enrolled students (+2 more copies for DE)
      • All additional course materials should be dropped off a Thursday in advance, so work goes out to their students quarantined that following Monday.
      • You may use the printer in the Adjunct Office (T6-G) for 1-sided print outs only.
      • Bulk copies are done in G2 or the Mail-room.
      • The Faculty Mailboxes in the Mailroom are used for drop-offs and pick-ups for our TMCCF Location.
      • DE has two mailboxes in the Mailroom:
        • 1. The Distance Education local mailbox:  the smaller box for common mail (located in the department boxes).
        • 2. The Distance Education Offline/Package area:  the first shelf under the full-time faculty mailboxes closest to the wall.* Please leave your bulk items in our drop box here.
