The California Community College Online Education Initiative (OEI), the state-sponsored project that aims to dramatically increase the number of students who earn associate degrees and transfer to four-year colleges, has come a long way since it was announced in the fall of 2013, according to the OEI’s executive director, Patricia James. “If you remember, we were in bad economic times back then, turning away students at almost all of our colleges,” James told an attendees at the annual CT Forum conference, held in Long Beach, CA this month, “and the governor was looking at MOOCs and other business-ed types of activities that would bring courses to our students. But now we’re trying to get them back with the online courses they need to complete their educational goals.”
