Online Learning

We are here to support faculty and staff in the use of instructional technology and in the area distance learning. Distance learning takes place when a student is not present in the traditional classroom and is learning via a distance. As facilitators, we will assist faculty in their roles as educators in the areas of educational technology and online learning in fulfilling our primary mission to enhance academic outcomes. We are responsible for maintaining equipment, facilities and systems related to online learning. Our goal is to provide the best possible sustainable environment for successful learning in the college.
