The months are flying by and we are so busy here in Online Education Initiative (OEI) land. I keep thinking that things will slow down as we solidify the initiative components, but it seems they are picking up speed instead! Everyday there is a success that is followed by a new challenge, and so the building of the initiative continues.

The California Community Colleges (CCC) Online Education Initiative (OEI) has recently hit some major milestones–most significantly the selection of Instructure’s Canvas as the common course management system (CCMS) for our colleges.
The process actually started last summer at the Distance Education Coordinators’ Retreat in San Diego. It continued in fall, with the formation of the full CCMS Committee comprised of the CCMS Workgroup of the OEI Steering Committee and representatives of the Full Launch Pilot Colleges, and culminated with the selection on Feb. 5, 2015.

Hello there! I am in our offices at Foothill College as I write this, and I am so impressed by the supportive atmosphere at this institution, for both students and staff! It’s quite interesting for someone like me, who has been immersed in one college for so long, to experience another culture.

It’s hard to believe it’s already November. I am wondering where the last two months have gone! It seems like just yesterday we were figuring out the colleges that would make up the pilot groups for the Online Education Initiative (OEI), and that we had time to get things together before spring. Just like when you are teaching, the semester passes before you know it. Allow me to catch you up on what we’ve been doing.
