Distance Education: Our Mission

To support online success and retention by ensuring uniformity in terms of Learning Management Systems (LMS) and online instructor responsibility and accountability, according to the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Contract (Article 40). The Distance Learning Mission is congruent with the college mission because it facilitates student success and appeals to a diverse community where some students need online access to courses and programs.

1.  Supporting instructors with resources, workshops, seminars, and webinars

2.  Maintaining contact and communication with IT Department and Learning Management System support services

3.  Reviewing the Distance Learning Policies and Procedure Manual each semester

4.  Determining proficiency in a CMS and shall serve as a resource to the college on distance learning issues.
