Texas A&M Corpus Christi adopts e-learning technologies and processes to positively transform teaching methods such that students are fully engaged in learning and do not drop out of courses. In addition, space constraints are relieved by the use of online experiences for students outside of physical classrooms. Online degree and certificate programs are offered that meet the needs of citizens in Texas. And, in the event of a disaster, faculty and students are able to continue the business of education by using online technologies.
The Office of Distance Education and Learning Technologies provides leadership, coordination, management, and support to the e-learning activities of Texas A&M Corpus Christi. The office works collaboratively to provide educational opportunities throughout Texas and beyond, provide open learning environments so that learning can occur anytime and anyplace, and distribute faculty knowledge and expertise to benefit society and the economic vitality of the Coastal Bend.
Given our mission, we have adopted a “servant leadership” approach. Our task is to build a shared vision and high level of trust among all stakeholders, administrators, instructors, students, and staff. We make every effort to empower participants to pursue that shared vision, support that pursuit, and provide professional development and other resources when needed. Elements of our culture include empowerment, inclusion, consensus building, collaboration, systems thinking, trust, and transparency.
