Hybrid Course Working Group
At the end of the 2004 Fall Semester, the Academic Senate decided that we should form a working group to define the term �hybrid course� in order to differentiate it from �technology-enhanced instruction,� �distance education,� and �traditional course.�

ATC recommends BlackBoard
At the last meeting of the Fall semester, members of the ATC recommended that the college adopt BlackBoard for use by Distance Education and other course use.
At its Mar. 10th meeting, the ECC Technology Committee formally recommended that the college purchase the Enterprise version license to BlackBoard in time for Fall 05 semester use. The Enterprise version was selected so that BlackBoard can link directly to the college student data system and so that all faculty can use BlackBoard in their courses. The ECCTC included in their recommendation that staff be hired to assist with technical and operational support. The ATC seconded this recommendation at its Mar. 11th meeting.
Joe Georges named ATC faculty co-chair
Joe Georges has been named faculty co-chair of the Academic Technology Committee. He replaces Pete Marcoux and serves with the continuing administrative co-chair, Virginia Rapp, Dean of Business.
