Faculty Center - Instructional Technology Support

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

All the equipment, software and training materials in the Faculty Center are for faculty use.  We have a Faculty lab with more than 20 MAC/PC work stations, multimedia stations, sound proof booths equipped with captioning and voice recognition software, and a wide variety of other educational technology. We also offer emerging Professional Development workshops throughout the semester to promote student success.


One-to-One Technology Instruction

Whether you are building a new course online, using technology as an enhancement or just curious about the newest technology available to you, you can always make appointments with the friendly staff at the Faculty Center for focused training sessions! Combined, the Faculty Center staff has over 40 years of experience.

Teaching Online

If you are interested in teaching online and want to become involved with the Distance Education program at Saddleback College, contact your department chair and contact us to get started with our Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas.  We recommend reviewing the OEI rubric to assist in your online course development.

Zoom provides a reliable, easy-to-use, mobile-friendly tool for live, recordable online presentations, meetings, and discussions with audio, video, chat, screen sharing, polling, and more. It can be used within Canvas or independently. Confer is the CCC “branding” of Zoom and is available to all faculty and students at no charge. Faculty need to sign up for Zoom through the Confer site to obtain unlimited access to all features of Zoom. Recordings can be set to auto-transcribe to provide captioned recorded videos.

  • ConferZoom provides live captioning for instructional uses of Zoom. As of summer 2018, send your captioning request at least 5 business days in advance to clientservices@cccconfer.org. It is expected that there will be an online form for requesting captioning soon. You will need to make a one-time change in your Zoom account settings to enable closed-captioning, and at the start of each Zoom session with captioning, you will need to assign the captioning role to the proper person in your meeting. See directions for both.
  • NOTE:  This account works with the Canvas LTI integration. 

The friendly staff, Valerie, Vivian & Thomas, are available to assist you.  Feel free to make one-to-one appointments and/or stop in!
