About This Blog
"...In the spring of 2009, the FPU Online Advisory Committee recommended and proposed to the members of Faculty Session that a center dedicated to providing support and resources for online education and technology enhanced instruction be established at Fresno Pacific University. Members of Faculty Session approved the proposal, pending the identification of external funding resources. In the fall of 2009, FPU was blessed to be able to establish a partnership agreement with the AIMS Education Foundation that provided the needed resources to begin the implementation of such a center. With final approval from the FPU Board of Trustees and the FPU President and Provost, the Center for Online Learning was created in October 2009..."

We are interested in how the power of having the internet at your fingertips changes the way you learn and get involved with your classes and fellow students, and hope to present resources and information that help you in a way you can easily access - but doesn't make you feel stupid.
