Credit Recognition Using e-Learning Materials

Overview

Students who have difficulty in attending regular face-to-face classes due to unavoidable reasons, like part-time students (with jobs) and credited auditors (i.e., students taking one or more courses of their choice) living in remote locations and students who are away from campus studying abroad, on internship programs or job hunting, can earn credits by using CEED’s e-learning resources as “ancillary materials for their coursework” and replace a part of regular face-to-face classes with them or as “e-learning courses” and replace all regular face-to-face classes with them, based on the judgment of the course instructors and the students’ supervisors (or course directors if students hava not belong to any laboratory.)

Eligible persons

Students in the Graduate School of Engineering, the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology or the School of Engineering are eligible to earn credits if they have been judged as having unavoidable reasons for not attending regular classes by both the course instructor(s) and their supervisors (or course directors).

Applicable courses

Courses (subjects) approved for credit recognition are the courses on the list of broadcast courses that can be used to earn credits.

Course period

Regular face-to-face classes are offered either in the first (Spring / Summer term) or the second (Fall / Winter term) semester as described in the Student Manual. Accordingly, course registration must be completed according to the period when regular face-to-face classes are held, although e-learning materials are always viewable. Decisions on credit recognition (submission of grades) are also made only once in an academic year in principle.

Procedures with course instructors and supervisors (or course directors)

Students seeking credit recognition are required to obtain the approval of both the course instructor(s) and their supervisors (or course directors) by contacting them directly and informing them they would like to earn credits using e-learning materials.

*Since there is no way for teachers to distinguish students trying to earn credits using e-learning materials from regular students attending face-to-face classes, students are required to contact teachers directly and obtain approval from them.

Course registration and application to use the e-learning system

After obtaining the approval of teachers, students properly submit course registration. Course registration period is determined. Students must submit course registration by the specified deadlines.

At the same time, students must complete application to use the e-learning system via the CEED’s e-learning system according to the following chart (application to use the e-learning system (for credit recognition)). Procedures in the case of using e-learning materials as “e-learning courses” which means students replace all the regular face-to-face classes with them are different from procedures in the case of using them as “ancillary materials for their coursework” and replace a part of regular face-to-face classes with them.

Application to use the e-learning system is always available. However, if students would like to earn credits by using CEED’s e-learning resources over two academic years, they need to apply for enrollment in courses or submit “the e-learning courses registration form” again. Details are given on viewing e-learning courses > cancellation of cource registration.

Use for completion, grading and credit recognition

Course instructors should provide adequate guidance to students taking their e-learning courses in order to ensure they have the same quality of learning environment as offered at regular face-to-face classes, such as question-and-answer sessions. For example, offering opportunities for students to meet them, promptly respond to questions from students, giving them assignments or having them submit reports, or putting them through the semester-end exam.

Course instructors are also responsible for viewing management, which is equivalent to class attendance management for regular face-to-face classes. As reference data for course viewing management, they can reference grade data, which show how much of the videos students have viewed.

Students’ academic performance must be assessed stringently based on the authority and responsibility of the course instructors in a way that guarantees the same quality as regular face-to-face classes.

Application to use the e-learning system (for credit recognition)

The application period is not limited. Students can apply for enrollment in courses regardless of the course registration period if they obtain the approval of both the course instructor(s) and their supervisors (or course directors).

This section provides a brief overview of the application procedures for viewing e-learning content.
For more information on the procedures, see the system user manual (for students) and using e-learning chart.

In the case of students cannot attend regular face-to-face classes
If you cannot attend regular face-to-face classes for unavoidable reasons like part-time students (with jobs), being away from campus studying abroad, on internship programs, job hunting, or attending academic conferences, you can earn credits by using e-learning materials.

Obtain the approval of both the course instructor(s) and their supervisors (or course directors) by contacting them directly and informing them you would like to earn credits using e-learning materials.

Use e-learning materials as a part of regular face-to-face classes (as “ancillary materials for their coursework”)

Submit “e-learning courses registration form” to CEED.
*Creating a system account and applying for enrollment in courses is not required. The system administrator do them on behalf of you. (If you already have an account, please fill out about it in the registration form).

Submit course registration according to course period.
*In random order. If it is within accepted period of course registration, you can do it before application to the CEED.

If you do not receive any message within 2 business days, please contact CEED.
Please discuss how study using e-learning with the course instructor(s).
