Virtual, online only event


TechConnect (TechConnect Cloud/3C Media Solutions, TechConnect Zoom/CCC Confer, and the Online Teaching Conference) is funded by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, Digital Infrastructure and Innovation Division, under the SIP Grant.  TechConnect provides a coordinated platform of technology products, services, trainings, and support to the 58,000 faculty, staff, and administrators in the advancement of educational success to the over 2.1 million students throughout the California community colleges’ decentralized infrastructure and is based at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA.

The Online Teaching Conference (2020 will be its 20th year) is a unique face-to-face* premier gathering of faculty, staff, and administrators leading the way in developing innovative and effective online education. As an inter-segmental conference focused on curriculum, pedagogy and technology to improve online instruction, learning, and student success, the Online Teaching Conference is an opportunity for educators to network with colleagues, connect, share knowledge, impart and receive best practices, and develop professionally.

The Online Teaching Conference is brought to you by CCC TechConnect.  The OTC is a non-profit event funded under a California Community Colleges Chancellors Office grant. For information on additional TechConnect products and services available to the faculty, staff, and administrators of California Community Colleges, please visit: www.ccctechconnect.org.

*Due to COVID-19, OTC’20 will be a minimized, virtual event only with no face-to-face interaction.

 Effects of COVID-19 on OTC’20

Originally posted in part April 20, 2020 The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and TechConnect are dedicated to continuing the efforts to limit the spread and impact of COVID-19. ​To support this, and the current directives of our state and local authorities, we have decided to move the premier face-to-face 2020 Online Teaching Conference to an online event. Although we regret not being able to come together in person, we are excited to present OTC’20 as a multi-day event at no cost to our attendees.

Now more than ever, it is important to provide our faculty, staff and administrators the tools needed for online instruction, learning and student success.  The OTC Team is committed to bringing the online teaching community together in a digital format while presenting the same quality content it has provided in person over the last 20 years.  We are working on creating a balanced program that not only continues to enhance the needs of seasoned online teaching professionals but also those who are new to online instruction given the current circumstances. (updated 5/6/20 Registration – Singular registration allowed entry in to all OTC’20 sessions! Pre-conference workshops required separate registration.)

In the meantime, for those who paid for conference and pre-conference workshops, please request a refund or transfer. Sponsors and Exhibitors, please see our information for Sponsors and Exhibitors. If you have made hotel accommodations, please see our Accommodations page for more information.
