About the Department

The Online Education Center at De Anza College provides resources for students who are taking online, hybrid or face-to-face courses that utilize our campus' Course Management system. In addition, we provide training and support for faculty who wish to teach online or enhance their courses with online resources and activities.

For Students

The Online Education Center is committed to providing students with the support they need to successfully access and use Canvas, our course management system. While most of your contact will be with your instructors after your courses begin, you can still find resources here that will help you stay organized and be successful in your online course.

For Faculty

The Online Education Center supports faculty in the development of online and hybrid classes with training, support and the collaborative development of online learning policies and procedures. In addition, we are here to train and assist faculty who want to use Canvas for their traditional face-to-face classes.

Wellness Central

  • Free online health and wellness resource
  • Designed for community college students
  • Your space, at your pace!

Wellness Central has lots of useful information about topics that are important to you – like first aid, birth control, nutrition, sexual health and help with stress or depression. It works kind of like an online course – but with no exams or grades. Use it at your own pace: You can search for information and videos on specific topics, or just browse for whatever looks interesting.
