Outreach and Partners

Partnerships with corporations and both external and internal educational entities help DELTA succeed with distance education, instructional services, technology development and marketing. These collaborations also enable DELTA to work with affiliates in the community to identify and solve learning issues.


DELTA staff members are eager to visit your college, department or unit to talk about how we can assist you with learning technologies or distance education needs. In meeting with your group we will share information about our services and learn about your needs in learning technologies and online or blended learning.

Topics may include

  • Online and Distance Education student services
  • Online and Distance Education program planning and development
  • Course redesign
  • Instructional support services
  • Production services
  • Campus learning technologies
  • Reusable tools
  • Blended learning
