Initial Assessment: Following a districtwide assessment by library faculty of the Innovation Interfaces’ 2001 Millennium integrated library system (ILS) used by the four Los Rios colleges, a recommendation was made and accepted to transition to the next generation Innovative Interfaces’ Sierra Library System. The transition was completed in 2015 and is meeting library needs.
Indicators of Success:
Initial Assessment: The number of online course offerings and student enrollments in online courses throughout the district are increasing and students are increasingly depending on online modalities to receive support services to meet academic needs without additional student costs for online materials. The colleges are required to provide parity in the services offered regardless of course modality. Online tutoring is currently offered at all Los Rios colleges. The colleges recently joined the state’s Online Education Initiative (OEI) and now have access to additional tutoring options for students.
Indicators of Success:Distance education students report in district-wide student survey that they have access to online tutoring and are satisfied with the services they receive.
