Distributed Education

Volunteer State's Distributed Education program offers non-traditional instructional delivery to assist students who are prevented from attending traditional classes by work, family or other commitments and responsibilities or who prefer learning via technology.

Our Mission

The Vol State Distributed Education department will provide relevant training in support of faculty and student teaching and learning with technology. Distributed Education is committed to assisting with the design, development, implementation, management, and assessment of instructional technologies and electronic learning methodologies that improve outcomes in the online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced traditional learning environments. For more information, feel free to review the Distributed Education Handbook.

What We Do

We provide training and support for faculty and students using technology in education. We work with faculty in all divisions to help them prepare and deliver excellent elearning experiences for students. We offer professional development opportunities to faculty throughout the year on topics such as mobile learning, gamification, social learning, web 2.0 tools, creating engaging learning environments, assessments, and more! Our team has experience teaching and learning online, and we are excited to partner with others interested in the use of educational technologies for the benefit of students!
