Online Education Center

Image of student with laptopThe Online Education Center at De Anza College provides resources for students who are taking online, hybrid or face-to-face courses that utilize our campus' Course Management system. In addition, we provide training and support for faculty who wish to teach online or enhance their courses with online resources and activities.

We offer a large variety of lower-division online courses that offer students the opportunity to learn at flexible time schedules. Our courses are academically equivalent to on-campus courses and are delivered online interactive components such as presentations, videos, discussions and online collaborations with other students. Many of our online courses meet general education and transfer requirements for California public institutions.
