Currently in contract negotiations
15 COMMON COURSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM! CANVAS! We considered what was best for students.
16 WHY CANVAS? Overwhelming support from students Nearly unanimous decision Ease of use and robust functionality Partnership and customization opportunities History of strong completion and success rate improvements Site visits and reference checks (including students & faculty) were overwhelmingly supportive
17 COMMON COURSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM! CANVAS! Canvas
18 DO ALL COLLEGES HAVE TO MOVE TO CANVAS? NO! We hope you will want to, though! Ease of use and upgrades will be managed at the system level Cost will be significantly reduced Resources will be integrated for both faculty and students Opportunities for collaboration for both faculty and students Partnership with Canvas will allow for customization for the CCC s Many resources will still be available to those who stay in their own CMS.
19 WHAT TO DO WITH ANY SAVINGS? Resolution S15 Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates and bargaining units to work with their administrations to ensure that any monetary savings which may result from a district or college transitioning to a Common Course Management System (CCMS) be used primarily to support the professional development needs of distance education faculty making the transition to the new CCMS.
20 ONLY ONE COMPONENT.. Student Exchange
21 ONLY ONE COMPONENT.. STUDENT EXCHANGE We are NOT the 113 th CCC.
22 WHAT S THE EXCHANGE? Will allow students needing courses that are not available at their home college, to seamlessly enroll in those courses, as needed, at other CCCs, thereby, leveling the enrollments in high demand or difficult to fill courses. Will include access to resources for both colleges and students Improve completion rates across the state.
23 IMPLICATIONS OF THE EXCHANGE Access to the hard to get courses needed to graduate or transfer Exchange courses seamlessly articulate between colleges (C-ID, ADT courses) Streamlined application and registration processes Financial aid combined across colleges in the Exchange Common learning environment (CCMS / Canvas) Course status and final grade shared back to home college automatically (credit toward degree or transfer goal)
24 DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO BE IN THE EXCHANGE? CCMS (Any college) Local Online Courses Online Course Exchange (Consortium Colleges) Local F2F, Hybrid Courses Requires OEI Course Review C-ID, ADT Approved Courses Focused on Student Completion Who gets credit? Teaching College: FTE ($) Home College: Completion
25 LOCAL SENATES MUST BE CONSULTED Resolution S15 Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges affirm that college or district participation in any of the current or future statewide initiatives does not nullify local senate purview over academic and professional matters; Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the Chancellor s Office to remind governing boards and their designees that they must engage in collegial consultation with local senates before and during participation in any current or future statewide initiatives which encompass academic and professional matters; and Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to focus on the educational needs of their students and the professional needs of their faculty when deciding whether or not to recommend to their governing boards and/or designees participation in any current or future statewide initiative.
