University of Hawai'i Community Colleges: E-Learn
Walsh, Marilyn
Educational Perspectives, v35 n1 p24-25 Spr 2002
The E-Learn program is a collaboration of all seven University of Hawai'i (UH) community colleges to offer a distance-delivered Associate in Arts degree. The core mission of the UH Community Colleges is to put postsecondary education within the reach of every resident of the state. To provide that access, community colleges must be affordable, adaptable and flexible. In this article, the author describes how all seven UH community colleges are effectively working together to create the E-Learn program. In Spring semester 2000, the UH Community Colleges began "E-learn"--a series of distance courses that were offered across the seven campus system. E-learn was designed so that students could work towards the Associate in Arts degree without having to attend traditional classroom-based courses. The success of this collaboration is reflected in increasing enrollments in online courses offered by the community colleges.
