Distance Education in the California Community College is changing. And changing fast! With the work of the Online Education Initiative helping colleges offer fully supported online courses, the roll out of CANVAS (currently adopted by over 90 of our 113 campuses), and the Online Course Exchange, College of the Desert must decide where its DE program should go. What will it be in a year? In five? Who will our students be and where will they come “virtually” from?

College of the Desert faculty need to be part of the planning for distance education, and we will begin our conversation with a DE Vision Session. Food will be provided and any interested faculty will be paid their lab rate for attending and participating in the development of COD’s future online program. You do not need to be a current online instructor to come.
Please come prepared to address some of the following:
  • What programs—degrees or certificates—should we be offering fully online at COD?
  • What DE outcomes should we be assessing?
  • Do we want to explore joining the OEI’s course exchange?
  • What do faculty want for ongoing training?
  • A biannual survey of online students is being developed. What do you want to know about our DE students?
