Reimagining Distance Education: Obsessed with becoming the best

Alamo Colleges, an Achieve the Dream Leader College, awarded a record number of degrees and certificates (9,778) in 2015. Collectively, stakeholders within the five Alamo Colleges are doing great work to advance overall student success. However, we knew that we could do more, particularly in the area of distance education. We wanted to explore how we could become the best in the successful delivery of distance education. Thus, the chancellor charged me to collaborate with our stakeholders in exploring what it would take for us to become “best in class” in distance education.
