Ventura County’s community colleges turn on learning with technology

The global pandemic has created one of the grandest (monumental?) shifts imaginable in how we work and learn. It has also forever changed the way companies and institutions operate, as more hybrid and remote options are being offered than ever before. This shift parallels what’s happening in higher education as institutions view technologies as a new frontier to drive education forward. 

At Ventura College, technology is central to our online learning courses and cutting-edge, immersive training for health care students simulates real-world experiences. 

Before the pandemic, many colleges and universities offered a selection of courses that included online and hybrid formats but focused the majority of their course offerings on traditional classroom instruction. 

Everything changed when the pandemic lockdown began mid-semester in spring 2020, as few institutions were prepared to immediately segue to a fully online and remote format.
