Academic Resources for Distance Education

For any questions you have about your online course, contact your instructor. For additional academic assistance, take advantage of our Library and Learning Center resources.

Library Resources

You can use the resources of the Library, even if you cannot come to campus. As a Cañada student, you can get a library card, which gives you access to many online resources such as informational databases, eBooks, and streaming films. To find out how to get a library card or contact a librarian, view the Distance Education Library Guide.

Learning Center Tutoring Resources

The Learning Center provides tutoring, peer mentoring, computer access, and other learning resources. Tutoring is available in the Learning Center on a drop-in basis, and online tutoring is available as well. To learn more about the tutoring services available or to access online tutoring, see the Learning Center Tutoring Services website, or contact the Learning Center at (650) 306-3348.


Textbooks and supplies may be purchased online from the Cañada College Bookstore.
