For faculty and classified professionals, we provide:
  • Strategies for making online offerings more student-centered, flexible, and pedagogically innovative
  • Suggestions about DE courses that  better serve our under-prepared and underrepresented students
  • Suggestions on creating an integrated online "campus" – integrating library, counseling, financial aid and other services into the students' "virtual classroom" learning space
  • Online and face-to-face instructional materials to meet Section 508 accessibility standards
  • Information about emerging technologies and resources to support the enhancement of teaching and delivery of distance education courses
