Lani:Withstudent success as our goal—using technology as a tool to enhance teaching and learning.
LMS is a software application for distributing courses over the Internet with features for online collaboration. We began using Blackboard in 2001 and moved to D2L in a transition year from 2008-9.
Faculty do not get any compensation for developing an online course at ARC. Department make strategic decisions about which courses they want to offer online. Courses with a DE component must go through the curriculum process and approved before being offered online.
Lani: Another strength of the ITC is the support we provide.
Students like D2L: access to students, teacher, 24/7 gradebook, digital dropbox, Online: to fill out their schedule, to not to drive to campus

Marsha: We need to stay abreast of new technologies if we are to be on the cutting-edge of educational technology. We also need to provide resources and just-in-time training to staff. We need to figure out how we can do this effectively and cheaply.
Many of our students are digital natives. They are highly connect and technology savvy. They expect information to be readily accessible. Many have already experienced online learning and will spend their lives in digital environments after college. Online learning will continue to grow—it’s inevitable. The ITC will continue to help support instructors integrate technologies in their courses.
