|Title III Grant Activities|
A Message from the Director: Barry Kaaz
In October, 2009, Colby Community College (CCC) was awarded a five-year Title III Grant of approximately $2 million dollars from the U.S. Department of Education’s Strengthening Institutions Program and the Higher Education Act. The focus of the CCC Title III grant is to increase enrollment by developing a distance learning network for rural, place-bound students. Activities to accomplish this goal include converting courses for online delivery, developing student services to facilitate and ensure the success of students enrolled in courses offered at a distance, providing training to faculty and staff for online course pedagogy and technology skills, and building the infrastructure necessary to support distance learning.
Distance Learning in Norton & Wakeeny
Funds from the Title III grant were used to assist in the set up of Norton and Wakeeny's technology enhanced classrooms. RN students can receive instruction and face-to-face interaction.
Online Tutoring is now available. Let’s help educate students on how easy it is to now access help and tutoring. Located on the home page of eCollege, all CCC students (distance and on-campus) can access this eCollege "course.” Simply sign into ePortal, select eCourses, and then click the link to “Online Tutoring.” There you will find links to help students with various subjects along with instructions on how to contact tutors from a distance.
