Hello DE Faculty!

Changes to Distance Education staffing and training are occurring! We have constructed a District-wide training schedule with workshops and office hours at each college, as well as online workshops and office hours - some during evening hours.

We are fortunate to have four well-qualified staff conducting training at RCCD, each having their own area of expertise:

Vincent Alonzo and Derek Moore, Online Educational Support/Technologies Trainers have been serving Distance Education needs for RCCD distance education faculty for 18 years! Vincent’s and Derek’s wealth of experience allow them to provide excellent technical assistance and training to faculty in Canvas, including use of native Canvas tools and integration of third-party applications into Canvas.
If you need Canvas training, help with building your Canvas class, setting up course content, Canvas tools / apps, and related educational technology - or if there's a problem with how things are working in Canvas, Vincent or Derek are the people to call! They also provide video recording services to faculty, especially course introductions. Vincent works primarily at MVC and RCC. Derek works primarily at RCC and Norco College.
