Well-designed online courses and programs are critical to student success. In the California Community Colleges, resources are not always available to support the development of quality courses and to facilitate the establishment of a distance education program that effectively meets student needs, conforms to existing laws and regulations, and complies with accreditation standards. The OEI is committed to developing resources to meet these needs.
The Online Education Initiative provides the opportunity for faculty to not only share effective practices across the state, but to also gain access to additional resources such as:
