Brief Summary of ProposalThis is a proposal for delivery of 2530:243 Medical Coding and 2530:244 Medical Insurance Billing in an on-line, web-based format. Our students have numerous concerns in their lives: work responsibilities, family obligations, social commitments, and community involvement. We know from experience that many have had difficulty in scheduling classes, or may not be able to take a specific course during the desired semester. Web-based courses can accommodate many of the issues that may restrict students from otherwise attending a traditional classroom and advancing their studies. Web-based instruction also presents an opportunity to serve a new market segment of students in the health care office management field. Individuals not currently able to attend traditional classes due to the demands of the employment may very well start their associate degree program via the Web with these proposed courses. There is no difference between the academic content of the traditional version of the courses and the proposed web-based versions. Expected learning outcomes are the same for both web and classroom-based courses. Various web technologies will be utilized. These include e-mail, discussion lists, threaded discussions, and automated testing procedures.
