Welcome to the Distance Education Resource Center for COD
In spring 1998, the first online classes were delivered by College of the Desert; students were enrolled in four different courses. As of fall 2009, the enrollment in fully online sections had grown to 2,658 students. DE courses are among the first to fill during each term’s registration period and the demand shows no sign of decreasing. In order to address this student need, the number of courses offered in DE format has steadily increased over the years which enable students to complete more program, transfer, and degree requirements fully online.
Whether you are an experienced online instructor or new and want to know more about the types of courses we have or the skills you need to teach online, check out some of the links on the left side of the screen for more information.
