The OLC will coordinate the inclusion of the online course offerings and descriptions in their local course marketing materials.
The OLC will coordinate with their local counselors the placement of students in the online courses.
The Online Learning Coordinator (OLC) will coordinate registration and course enrollment for each student, including the verification/validation of each student's e-mail address. This may involve establishing student e-mail accounts with providers such as http://www.outlook.com/ or http://www.gmail.com.
The OLC will coordinate technology needs for running the online courses and communicate that information to appropriate staff and students. Such technology needs may include but are not limited to: details of web browser requirements, browser plug-ins, sound cards, etc.
The OLC will work with the center Director and the center Technology Coordinator to establish and coordinate technology literacy training and triage of the center's staff.
