I am re-posting/cross -posting a question from Jason Guard last month concerning reporting of distance education hours. Please see Jason's questions below. How does your program address these issues?

In the management system of the computer-based instruction program you use, how do you separate classroom use time (contact hours) from distance learning time (proxy hours)? For reporting purposes, the data needs to be differentiated to avoid claiming classroom hours twice. If there is a time/date stamp with each lesson, you can pinpoint whether the work was done during class time, but that gets arduous for teachers/staff. Do any of your programs have a mechanism in place for ensuring that you're only pulling only proxy hours for a report?
