If you are planning to teach an online or hybrid course in the future for VCCCD, you must complete the district Online Teacher Training Course in Canvas prior to assignment.
Completion of the course prepares you to teach online for all three colleges in the district and effectively set-up and manage your courses with the most recent California Community College Chancellor's Office standards for distance education. The training course is conducted online, to replicate the student experience, and can take up to one month to complete depending on experience and technology comfort level.
Online Teacher Training Certification
Which Instructors have completed the VCCCD Online Teaching Certificate Course?
A Certification list for all 3 colleges is maintained by the Instructional Technologist Designer team. The list is updated a couple of weeks after each training course completes. If an instructor is significantly behind and finishing a previous course, the Instructional Technologist will need to be notified in order to confirm completion before they are added to the district-wide list. If it seems possibly out of date, please contact Laura Gentry at (805) 678-5302 for verification.
