ITSO offers a variety of in-person, print, and online training opportunities to the faculty and staff at Hawaiʻi CC.


Workshops are offered during the academic year as well as in the summer on a variety of topics including Laulima, Google Apps, and other Educational Technology topics. As workshops are scheduled, they are advertised through the faculty/staff email listserv, and through the Faculty/Staff Development committee.

Online Course Development Program

The Online Course Development Program (OCDP) guides a cohort of 6-10 faculty members through the process of creating an online class, from the ground up. The program uses the ADDIE instructional design model to guide participants through the process of analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating an online course created for instruction at Hawaiʻi CC.

The OCDP runs 8-11 months (depending on whether developed course will be taught in the following fall or spring semester). Participants are eligible for a stipend for successfully completing the program.

OCDP applications are made available in February/March, and the program begins in late May.
