About Online Learning

The Distance Education Program is designed to make online education accessible, and to remove barriers that delay students’ progress, particularly for first generation college students, working students, and students who seek a credential or transfer to a college/university.

Students new to online learning are encouraged to go on a Quest for Online Success. (Use your Cabrillo ID and password.) There are four modules in Canvas that will help you become a more successful online learner by (1) introducing you to the Canvas learning management system, and (2) help you identify how to get "tech ready" and become an online learner.

In some courses, on-site exams may be held on campus at the discretion of the instructor and the department. Information including dates, times, and locations will be listed in the Cabrillo online class schedule prior to registration.

For information about a particular course, please contact the course instructor.
