Since the inception of the Online Education Initiative (OEI) and the renewal of the project as the California Virtual Campus-Online Education Initiative (CVC-OEI) in 2018, many California Community Colleges have been working together to address online achievement gaps and increase student access to high quality fully-resourced online courses that propel them toward completion. During this time, our system has seen the average gap between face-to-face and online success rates narrow to less than 4 percent, and our data shows OEI pilot courses moving 4.9 percent above the statewide average. There are many components now deployed within and beyond the CVC-OEI Consortium that are benefiting students and the colleges in our system while the CVC Exchange is expanding.
This session will explore the role of the CVC-OEI, the various components, and the services it provides, as well as the collaborative role of the OEI Consortium in addressing the needs of California Community College students. The session will also discuss the expansion of the Consortium and the implementation of Local Peer Online Course Review. Perspectives of the CVC-OEI staff and Consortium representative will open options for your college to continue the exciting improvements in online success for our students.
