In line with Sacramento State’s tradition of promoting educational access, Academic Affairs is fully engaged in using appropriate eLearning modalities to provide students increased access to the University’s educational resources.  Courses designated as either hybrid or online provide students the opportunities to access course materials at a distance, but also encourage the creative use  of technology to foster a richer and more engaged teaching and learning environment.  The eAcademy, offered through the unit of Academic Technology and Creative Services (ATCS), in collaboration with the Center for Teaching and Learning, offers faculty intensive professional development for converting traditional and face to face courses to hybrid and online formats.  While eLearning technology and pedagogy continue to evolve, academic affairs is committed to ensure that students have access to information technology that enriches their overall educational experience, as well as support the high quality educational programs in which they are enrolled.
