Q&A Course Content
Feb 17, 2011
I have to create a course online from an existing "correspondence" course that consists entirely of questions and answers (seriously) and a quiz or two. A typical question and answer is shown below. I really don't want to put a bunch of questions and answers on slides and call it learning, but am in a quandary about what to do with this...I obviously thought about making this more conversational, but everyone of the questions addresses a specific statute of the real estate law and the responses quote the statutes almost verbatim, which is probably necessary so the learner is getting accurate responses. Does anyone have any ideas of what I could do with this content? I have 20 or more of these questions and some of the "answers" are pages long. Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have.

WHAT ARE THE EXAMINATION, LICENSING, AND RENEWAL FEES?
The Licensing Act now establishes "ceilings" for each of these fees. The Real Estate Commission sets the actual fees which cannot exceed the limits established by law. The fee ceilings were changed in the 2009 Unicameral session and are as follow:
1. The application fee cannot exceed $250.00. This application fee pays the cost of the investigation conducted by the Commission of each applicant for a salesperson's or broker's license to ensure that the applicant can prove their "honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness" and that all statements made on the application for a license by the applicant are true.
2. The examination fee cannot exceed $250.00.
3. The examination retake fee cannot exceed $250.00.
Licensing and renewal fees:
1. Salesperson original or renewal cannot exceed $200.00.
2. Broker original or renewal cannot exceed $250.00.
All licensing and renewal fees are based on the calendar year. For original licensing, once the licensing exam has been passed, the new licensee sends the original licensing fee to the Commission, which will license them through the balance of the calendar year. Licensing fees are not prorated. Whether the salesperson's licensing exam is passed in March or in September, the same original licensing fee is paid to the Real Estate Commission, licensing them through December 31 of that year.
Each year after the original licensing, the licensee, whether they are active or inactive, must renew their license and pay the renewal fee. In September or October of each year, the Commission mails a renewal application form and errors and omissions insurance information to each licensee. The licensee mails the completed application and payment to the Commission by November 30 of each year. Failure to provide renewal documents and fees results in cancellation of the license beginning January 1 of the next year.
A licensee who does not renew by November 30 can file a late renewal by paying the licensing fee plus a fee not to exceed $25.00 for each month or fraction of a month that the renewal is late. The late renewal option is available Dec. 1 through June 30. Any check or electronic payment sent to the Commission for original or renewal of a license which is returned for insufficient funds is grounds for denial or revocation of a license.
