I will encourage and support the use of new technology to bring in additional revenue for our college. We live in an era of electronic communication and I am a big supporter of online courses for subjects that lend themselves to learning in this medium. I understand fully that we need to assess this carefully to assure that a high level of learning is accomplished. Also critical are the articulation agreements with four-year universities. We need our students to get full credit from their transfer institution for their online course. There are opportunities in the area of online learning that may create a new revenue stream for our college, and it is an area that needs to be pursued. In addition to the revenue, this technology will provide greater flexibility to a student population that is increasingly a working population. Another benefit is for the environment, as online courses do not require our students to travel to the college.
