Initial Assessment: Online, hybrid, and web-enhanced courses are provided primarily through Desire-to-Learn (D2L), Moodle, and some publisher learning management systems (LMS). In May 2016, the district’s LMS Work Group recommended to the District Academic Senate that all Los Rios colleges join the CCCCO Online Education Initiative, including adopting Canvas as the sole Los Rios online, hybrid, and web-enhanced course LMS platform. The recommendation was accepted by the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees approved the necessary contracts. Despite information in the class schedule regarding individual class section requirements/expectations for use of online, hybrid and/or web-enhancements, many students are unaware of those requirements/expectations when they register for the classes. District and college research offices lack efficient access to course modality information to produce required enrollment and student outcome reports to meet local, accreditation, state, and federal requirements with reasonable levels of time and effort.
