The board that oversees California’s 112 community colleges approved a contract on Tuesday to spend $16.9-million on a “one-stop statewide online-education portal” that will let students take online courses from any of the state’s participating two-year institutions. The Foothill-De Anza and Butte-Glenn community-college districts created a partnership to win the portal contract, money for which was included in Gov. Jerry Brown’s 2013-14 budget. The goal of creating a single statewide system is to reduce overlap and take advantage of economies of scale, said Joseph Moreau, Foothill-De Anza’s vice chancellor for technology.
