Offering this class online in the summer would provide journalism students the opportunity to take one of their core classes in the summer when they are away from campus. This would free up more opportunity for electives during the Fall and Spring semester.
The InDev committee is returning the propsal for JOUR 204 for the following revisions.
I will be sending an email detailing the revisions and providing the rubric by which the committee reviews proposals.
If you have further questions, then please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

How will tests and quizzes be secured?
Stating that students will be "subject to discipline" may be too vague - consider specifying consequences.
It is suggested that best practices in DL suggest video lectures not to exceed 15 minutes. Consider reducing or segmenting the 40-minute video lectures. Also, double-check learning minutes for quizzes - 90 LM might be high for a 10 question quiz.
