@ONE Web Site Offers Enhanced Training Options
The newly redesigned @ONE Web site at http://one.fhda.edu offers technology training and resources for California Community College faculty, technical staff, support staff, instructional designers and trainers, and administrators. The @ONE project team has redesigned the Web site to focus on technology training resources to assist faculty and staff with their own learning .
Using the @ONE Web site, both faculty and staff can link to online courses, self-paced tutorials, and workshops to help improve skills. Training topics are organized in two tracks.
"Technology Tools" emphasizes software and hardware training and includes Web browsers, e-mail, word processing, and presentation software. Teaching Strategies" emphasizes effective practices in the instructional use of technology, and includes instructional design, web site design, course management, simulations, etc.
@ONE Training Packages are being put online for faculty and trainers to download as they become available. The focus of @ONEs training packages is the effective use of technology in teaching . Current training packages include:
- Creating an Instructional Web Site
- Using Email to Support Instruction
- Simulations for Teaching & Learning

Orientation to @ONE Training Packages
These are free sessions to help trainers and other faculty development professionals adapt @ONE training to meet local campus needs. Information about the content, the schedule and locations for Spring 2000 are located on the Web site in under @ONE Services.

Through the @ONE Web site, the CCC constituencies mentioned above, plus administrators, can find great resources to help enhance their use of technology:
- Books on instructional technology are divided into books on technology tools and books on teaching strategies.
- Conferences on technology;
- Related Web Sites of interest to faculty, staff and administrators; and
- News on recent instructional technology developments - devoted to keeping community college folks informed of recent news and information regarding instructional technology. This is a way to quickly find out about current educational technology news, and subscribe to technology listserves and other technology newsletters. Bookmark this @ONE page as the starting point for instructional technology updates.
The goal of the Trainer Network is to aid trainers to share ideas and resources. You can locate a technology trainer or register and add your name to our database of trainers.
New developments in the next few months will be geared to support a population of instructional designers, technologists and technology trainers at the colleges through what we hope will be a thriving Trainer Network.
@ONE is a California Community College project whose mission is to empower faculty and staff to enhance student learning and success through expanded uses of technology by providing training resources and support. It is funded by the CCC Chancellors Office through a grant to De Anza College.
The @ONE project team has representatives from ten colleges throughout California including Butte, Santa Rosa, Fresno City, Las Positas, De Anza, Cuesta, LA Trade-Tech, Santa Monica, Santa Ana and San Diego Miramar.
