D2L Training and Online Learning

Online Learning Department Mission

The department helps prepare faculty to be effective online teachers and advocate for engaging, high quality online learning for all types of learners. Online learning helps ensure the College meets the requirements of accreditors and regulatory agencies. We do these things in the following ways. We collaborate within the College and the System to use state resources wisely and to draw on and share our collective expertise. We innovate to ensure programs and services meet or exceed the expectations of students, community organizations, and businesses. Finally, we evaluate our performance and use the information to guide improvements. Visit the Normandale Online Education and the Normandale Online Ed Youtube Channel
