DE Faculty Handbooks

Ventura Pier


DE Faculty Handbook: 

This handbook serves as a resource for faculty teaching online or interested in teaching online courses. It provides information about resources, support, policies, and procedures in distance education at Ventura College.

Canvas Guides:

Currently we are teaching a four week course in Canvas called the Online Teacher Training Course in Canvas.  This course is intended for current distance education instructors who are teaching an online and/or hybrid course or instructors who are new to teaching online or a hybrid course.  Please contact Matthew Moore and/or Sharon Oxford for the next scheduled course. You will receive your Canvas guides and practice shell at that time.

Desire to Learn Guides:

Desire to Learn is the current Learning Management System for on campus courses.  We are still offering support in Desire to Learn, provide lite trainings in Desire to Learn, and provide consultations in course design. Please contact Matthew Moore and/or Sharon Oxford for more information about trainings, guides, or to set up a consultation.
