In order to teach online asynchronously faculty must be certified in distance education. You can find more information on course work, demonstration requirements, and the overall outlined process on the Compton College Process for DE Certification.

Below is are the requirements for DE certification:

  • Course Work
    Compton College has outline training that must be completed in order to teach online (asynchronous, Hybrid, and synchronous courses). All training is conducted through @ONE, a professional development organization dedicated to faculty teaching online.

    Once you have completed the above coursework you will need to submit proof of compelteion to the DE Department at before moving forward with a course demonstration
  • Demonstration

    Once you have completed the required course work you will need to complete a course demonstration through the Faculty Course Review Committee. Your course demo needs to have a developed introduction module along with three (3) content modules at a minimum for review.

    To get started, submit a review request to the Course Review Request Form. Once your request has been received the Distance Education Faculty Coordinator will assign you two (2) faculty reviewers who will guide you through the demonstration process.

    Should you have any questions regarding this process please contact us at or contact Dr. Brad Conn ( current Distance Education Faculty Coordinator.
