As needed, we will follow up with you to answer questions or clarify needs.
Affiliates fulfill many functions in their home departments. These may include technology support, instructional design, course coordination, SIS course scheduling, or other administrative tasks that support instruction. Staff who support the use of Research in View are also included in the ODEE Affiliate program.
While Affiliates may or may not be identified as front-line support for particular systems in your area, we expect that they will be in a position to communicate with instructors, staff, and leaders in your area about changes or opportunities related to Ohio State's online learning and profile systems.
