Town Hall Part 2: The California Community Colleges Online Education Initiative
Join our panel of experts to discuss the California Community Colleges Online Education Initiative.
This comprehensive, statewide initiative will dramatically increase the number of California students who obtain college associate degrees and transfer to four-year colleges each year by providing online courses and services within a statewide CCC Online Education Ecosystem. Special attention will be given to ensuring retention and success through basic skills support and other support services, especially for underserved and underrepresented cohort groups including those with disabilities.
Ultimately the initiative is expected to increase ease of use and convenience of the online experience, as well as significantly increase demand for online course delivery for California's community college students.
The Online Education Initiative Launch Team officers responsible for academic affairs, student services, and technology will speak about the vision of the initiative and current progress, as well as the strategic approach to addressing its many challenges. A Q&A session will follow the talk.
