About the Program

California’s community colleges have taken the lead in online learning in the state, offering thousands of online courses to hundreds of thousands of students. But students are less successful in online courses than they are in traditional ones. PPIC senior and Bren fellow Hans Johnson will discuss approaches to making online courses more successful in California’s community colleges—and beyond.

This research was supported with funding from the Donald Bren Foundation.
