About Distance Education

DE Staff

The Distance Education department at Santa Rosa Junior College assists faculty in the development and implementation of online and hybrid courses, as well as supporting the use of our course management system for all classes. In addition, we offer workshops, drop-in sessions, and one-on-one appointments to help faculty with issues such as online pedagogy, the use of online instructional tools, multimedia creation and delivery, captioning and copyright, and more.
