@ONE Project

The @ONE Project makes it easy for California Community College faculty and staff to learn about technology that will enhance student learning and success. @ONE’s programs provide training and online resources for free - or at a very low cost - thanks to funding from the California Community College Chancellor's Office Telecommunication and Technology Infrastructure Program (TTIP).

Each year, @ONE offers over 100 trainings, drawing more than 8,500 registrations.
