CVC-OEI Student Experience

Setting expectations and preparing students to make the best possible use of online learning technology is an important best practice. -Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) Report, 2015

The CVC-OEI strives to develop innovative online resources to support existing distance education programs at the California Community Colleges (CCC). With student equity at the forefront of all efforts, the CVC-OEI Student Experience team promotes a holistic approach for the online learning environment. It is important to remember that student support goes beyond instruction, it requires creating a space where students feel connected, supported and understood. This website is meant to provide resources and opportunities to build strategic plans that the CCC can implement at the local level.

Do you know students who would be interested in becoming part of the Student Bank?
