Welcome to the Faculty Center!

The Faculty Center is part of the Division of Online Education & Learning Resources.  

We are available to assist faculty with their online instructional technology needs, course design, accessibility best practices, and other helpful instructional technology resources unique to Saddleback College.  We also provide workshops throughout the semester.  Whether you are new to Saddleback or have been with us for awhile, keep this site as a handy resource to get help you when you need it.  

Make an appointment with one of us for focused one-to-one assistance with your online class design and implementation needs.  We would be happy to help.

Preparation tips for future emergencies:

  1. Keep a few generic - can be plugged in anywhere - assignments handy.
  2. Use the above tools throughout your semesters so you and your students are familiar enough with them to continue their learning should the need arise to use them exclusively.
  3. Create a little 'drill' once a semester.  Make it an assignment.  Tell your students they've experienced some disaster and they need to log in to Canvas to complete their assignment or communicate with you in some way.
  4. Play around with one or two tools that you think would come in handy.  Become adept.  You don't need to learn every tool there ever was in Canvas to continue holding class if there were an emergency.
