Online Learning & Professional DevelopmentOnline Learning Information| Resources
Lake Erie Online integrates completely with our administrative system as well as providing seamless data exchange.
(Lake Erie Online, our online learning platform powered by Jenzebar) is part of the Lake Erie College Intranet and houses the online learning management system that provides online learning for various courses and programs at Lake Eric College.
Our online and hybrid courses are designed to be viewed with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari Opera, and Firefox or higher, using Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Mac OS X 10.6 or higher operating systems. Broadband or wireless connection (DSL, cable, or faster) is required.
Online Learning Identity Verification
All students receive a unique login and password for Lake Erie Online (LEO) once they are accepted into their academic program. Once they receive these they are required to enroll in the password portal and change their password in a set amount of time. They then use this to access their online course(s) via LEO. Once enrolled and engaged in any online course adherence to academic honesty by all online students is expected as listed in all Lake Erie College school catalogs.
Online course faculty utilize a combination of collaboration, group work, personalized assignments, and discussions, online class meetings (i.e. Zoom or Google Meet), virtual office hours, and various communication methods between students and faculty. All of these provide cumulative opportunities for faculty to get to know their students, their work, their academic prowess, tendencies, and style of expression.
Certification of Online Faculty
All online faculty are required to complete FT-101-Orientation and Training for Online Faculty on LEO prior to the launch of their online course. This course includes information on all online policies and procedures, online course assessment as well as a methodology for determining academic rigor that meets the standards of the U.S. Department of Education.
