Title III SIP Sea Change Grant
The "Sea Change: Growing Enrollment with Real-World, Real-Time, Student-Centered Distance Education" grant at Kodiak College works to develop and improve students' experience in a growing catalog of eLearning courses. This Department of Education grant was approved under the “Strengthening Institutions Program, Title III, Part A of the Higher Education Act of 1965.” The 5-year grant, which runs from October 2010 through September 2015, is an outgrowth of the college’s Strategic and Academic Plans with input from key representatives of all stakeholder groups. This project was developed as a “comprehensive distance education initiative” providing theme-based eLearning courses, state-of-the-art learning technologies and resources, and distance support services focused on student success. The new themed courses are being developed around environmental and cultural issues that affect life on Kodiak and throughout Alaska.
