Online Education

The Online Education Initiative from the State Chancellor's Office creates opportunities for Cañada - to participate in the Online Exchange of courses, and/or to take advantage of the online resources/services that will be provided at low to no cost to all California Community Colleges.  Our own Distance Education Advisory Committee is beginning the conversation with faculty about these opportunities.  All faculty who use WebAccess, teach hybrid courses or teach online courses are encouraged to join in the conversation.
