Initially, an informal ad hoc structure, in 2007 Delgado Community College moved toward a formal structure for offering online courses and programs by creating the College’s Distance Learning & Instructional Technology (DLIT) Division. Last year, 2017, DLIT celebrated its 10th anniversary. Delgado Community College is a comprehensive community college, offering programs through the Associate degree. The College provides a learning centered environment through face-to-face and distance education to students from diverse backgrounds to attain their educational, career, and personal goals, to think critically, to demonstrate leadership and to be productive and responsible citizens.
Delgado Community College’s online programs are designed thorough a collaboration between the College’s Distance Learning & Instructional Technology (DLIT) Division and faculty members throughout the University.The Distance Learning office consists of a faculty, student, and staff support team specializing in all aspects of online education. The DLIT division provides curriculum & instructional design, faculty & staff professional development, LMS support, student recruitment and advising, and support for emerging and innovative teaching and learning practices.
Initially, online learning represented another delivery mode: face-to-face (in-person), hybrid (part in-person, part at a distance), and online (web-based and at a distance). Delgado Community College’s academic divisions are now focusing on the development of fully online programs to meet the requirements of both traditional and non-traditional students who need flexible schedules and/or accelerated pace to completing their academic goals. To that end, the DLIT division serves as a resource for the faculty seeking to develop online programs that reflect high quality in both engagement and rigor. The support team within the DLIT Division strive to provide prompt and attentive assistance to students enrolled in our fully online programs throughout their learning experience at Delgado Community College, from application and registration to graduation.
