Distance Education Training Opportunities

Looking for Past Workshops or Online Resources?

Join the LMC Canvas Shell

This Canvas shell is not intended to be a course; instead, it is an online location that houses the online tutorials, teaching resources, and recordings of past workshops that have been created by our LMC faculty, CVC-OEI instructors, and more.  The calendar at the bottom of the page includes upcoming DE events and trainings.  These resources will continue to be updated throughout the semester, so keep an eye out for new content!

Join the LMC Self-Paced Beginner's Guide to Teaching with Canvas

This is an introduction into using Canvas.  The course will take around five hours to complete on your own, depending on your current level of proficiency with Canvas.  There are module resources for basic course design, gradebook and student feedback, and making Canvas welcoming for students. 

Becoming an Effective Online Instructor

Have you taken BEOI yet?  

If you have not had a chance to take this amazing course, you still have time to register for the session coming up in October.  All registration information can be found on Grow@4cd.


This 100% online course includes one synchronous hour per week, plus ongoing asynchronous instruction and guidance over the 4-week period, with a fifth week allowed for final submissions. Participants should expect to spend from 4-7 hours per week on BEOI course content and course-building activities, depending on their level of familiarity with online instruction. Participants are issued a BEOI Practice Canvas course shell where they will create their homepage and modules. The Practice shell can later be copied over to assigned class shells. Register in Grow!

Comparable Training

Did you take training at another site or institution?

There is an opportunity for faculty who have completed a similar BEOI training to receive the approval of the district (per our new union requirement).  Please see the information below regarding this opportunity.  


If you have completed a training that covers the majority of the objectives and content of the 'Becoming an Effective Online Instructor' course, you should fill out the Submission for Comparable Training for Online Teaching at CCCCD and have the district review your course/s as equivalent. The form will ask you for the comparable course you have taken and for verification of completion. Upon submission, it will go to district and your requirement will be waived if you meet the criteria listed at the top of the form.  Please complete and submit following form.
