eLearning Council Meeting
I'm at the Summer eLearning meeting in lovely Port Angeles. The weather is beautiful and our meeting is in a Longhouse on the Pennisula Community College campus. Our hostess, Vicki, has done a marvelous job preparing and the meeting has just begun.
Cable Green announced that the Technology Plan has been approved, after unanimous approval by the college presidents. This is great news. Now we just need to have the legislature approve funding (about $21.5 million) for it, in this challenging economic time. On the plus side, the SBCTC has set this technology initiative as its #2 funding priority.
Cable has also announced a new WAC technology committee. They will be using the Technology Plan as their guiding document. They have also committed to searching for a Plan B if the legislature does not adequately fund the Tech Plan.
