AREC Student Participation Standards
for ZOOM classes
According to the Alabama Real Estate Commission, the following requirements must be followed for classroom courses offered virtually during 2021:
Video is mandatory. Students must physically be present on camera at all times. The instructor must be able to see the faces of all students. This does not include the top of a head or someone sitting at a long distance from a camera making it difficult to see the face. Any artificial background being used by a student should not include distracting movement and must not be a picture of the student. Anyone who uses a blackened screen should not be given course credit.
Students must be present 100% of the time. If someone loses connection and misses more than 15 minutes of the class, they do not receive course credit.
Students must behave appropriately and pay attention. This includes sitting in a location with a writing surface and facing a camera, not lying on the couch, or sitting in a comfortable recliner.
Students cannot be driving or participating in some other activity. Other activities include phone calls, paperwork, conversations with someone not in the class, walking on a treadmill, or anything else that is unrelated to the course.
Proper monitoring of students. The instructor and the administrator or any assistants must monitor each student and make corrections when needed.
Use breakout rooms, polling, or other means of promoting interaction. Students must be involved in the class.
Limit the chat tool to information related to the course. General conversations and comments make the chat tool difficult to maintain and follow. It should only be used for questions related to the course material and must be observed constantly to make sure all questions are identified and answered.
If you have questions or concerns about the ZOOM questions, please contact Amanda Adams at (334) 777-9052.
