California Community Colleges to Roll Out On-Demand Faculty Training

Faculty and staff in the California Community Colleges (CCC) will soon have access to online training on digital skills and tech tools. This summer, the CCC system is partnering with online learning platform Grovo to power the new CCC Learn Academy, an effort to "close the digital skills gaps that affect faculty and students across campuses."

With Grovo, the Academy will provide 87,000 faculty, staff and administrators with an extensive library of 60-second microlearning video lessons covering digital skills and professional topics. The system is cloud-based, so faculty can participate anywhere, any time. Trainings range from e-mail etiquette to Google Apps and Microsoft Office.

"We chose Grovo to power the new CCC Learn Academy because of its innovative approach to online learning. Technology is rapidly accelerating, and we want to empower our faculty with the training and development they need to do their best work," said Blaine Morrow, director of TTIP South for the California Community Colleges, in a press release. "We take pride in providing our students with the knowledge to thrive in today's workforce, and we're excited to do the same for our educators and staff."
