Quickly Evolving
What is Convergence?
What is ICT?
An umbrella term, widely used outside the U.S.
and in the U.N., to encompass all rapidly
emerging, evolving & converging:
programming and
information systems technologies.
Advocating for ICT
 ICT is currently rarely used
or recognized in the U.S.
 The Mid-Pacific ICT
(MPICT) Center has
adopted the term and is
championing its use as a
global standard in the U.S.
 In a global knowledge
economy, dependent on
ICT, we should have a
common framework.

Let’s move beyond average!
Distributed ICT Education
Make ICT Courses at One Community College Available
to Students at Many Community Colleges
Leveraging Equipment Investments
Leveraging Teaching Efforts
Increasing Quantity, Breadth and Depth
of ICT Course Offerings in Region
Increasing advanced and specialized
course offerings in region
More Efficiently Engaging Industry
Synergy Project
Synergy Hypothesis
If we scale up our innovation: using CCC Confer to deliver ICT courses in a hybrid inperson, online and archived format throughout California.
To a distributed ICT education system in which faculty offer courses in this hybrid
format from their schools, programs can elect to promote those courses and integrate
them into credentials at their schools, and students can easily and cost-effectively
enroll in these courses from anywhere in the State/region.
We will enhance ICT Education in the following ways: There will be a greater breadth
and depth of ICT course offerings; colleges will be able to offer and justify more
specialized and advanced ICT courses; rural students and programs will have access
to richer ICT offerings; more specialized ICT laboratory equipment investments will be
justified and available; students will be better able to enroll in the courses they want
when they want them, even in tough budget times; program, course and student
outcomes will improve; diverse and handicapped student populations and diverse
learning styles will be better served; the ICT workforce – and the industries,
enterprises and economies that depend on it - will be positively impacted; and college
relations with business and industry will be improved.
Because ICT programs will be able to justify developing and offering more specialized
and advanced courses and associated laboratories, because they will be able to fill
the courses if they open them to more than just students who can show up for every
class on time locally. This model is efficient and highly leveraged.
Logic Model
Deering Success Elements
Platforms work technically with any computer or browser at any network connection speed
from anywhere remotely. Does it fit with existing programs or does it compete?
CCC Confer is free to California community colleges; Elsewhere costs are affordable; Faculty
load and student fee issues are challenges; Avoid remote campus fees; Leverage costs for
expensive lab equipment to expand the breadth and depth of educational offerings
Platforms are powerful, but also complex. It can be intimidating, and there is a learning curve.
Toolkits and training need to make startup simpler for new instructors. Administratively, this
needs to work simply.
Technical platforms are very powerful and versatile and can be adapted to many different uses.
There are challenges adapting this to some laboratory equipment environments.
This is something we need to evaluate. How do we handle ineffective teachers and courses?
It is easy to join any session remotely and observe it in real time or via an archive. We need a
programmatic data tracking system, which MPICT can access.
Anybody can try the platform for free. Teachers can also try it any time in any class. Programs,
instructors and students can opt in or out at any time

Fall 2009 Pilot Evaluation
• 80% of students responded that the ability to take parts of a course
online was a major factor affecting not only the decision to enroll
but also the ability to complete the course.
• Over 90% of students who attended physical class sessions
reported that the online equipment and participation of online
students during the class session was not a distraction.
• All online students reported that their instructors were available and
responsive and they did not feel isolated by participating online.
• Most (78%) online students whose courses required them to
communicate or collaborate with peers reported that online
participation did not adversely affect peer interaction.
