MDC Online Master Course Catalog (Fall 2020 Option)

MDC Online 2207 Master Course Catalog

To support faculty during this time of remote learning at Miami Dade College during the fall of 2020, MDC Online will make available its course catalog to MDC faculty.  

MDC Online Master Courses are designed collaboratively by MDC Faculty Developers and MDC Online Instructional Designers using best instructional practices for online learning. They include learning modules, assessments, and designated text(s). These courses may be customized, but they do not require substantial development of new content.


Faculty may use the MDC Online Master Course content for their fall (2207) courses with the following understandings:

  1. In order to use the Master Course files, faculty must be either MDC Online certified or, for fall 2020 only, have completed the following Blackboard trainings: 1) Blackboard Get Started and Build Your Content, 2) Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and 3) Blackboard Ally.
  2. In order to maintain the integrity of the Proctored Assessment(s) for future terms, all Proctored Assessment(s) in the course must be administered in a proctored setting using ProctorU
  3. If the Proctored Assessment is not administered, an alternative assessment/assignment may be used and adjustments to the gradebook may be necessary.
  4. Using the course-specific textbook/materials of the MDC Online Master Course is strongly recommended as course content, assignments, and assessments are aligned to the textbook.  Any textbook change should have been made with a written justification to the department chairperson in order to ensure the required statutory textbook affordability protocols.

Please note: For MDC Online classes, the class sections will be released as content is prepared by the Course Delivery team per the typical procedure.  This catalog was developed for sections that are being offered remotely due to the current situation.
