Center for Teaching & Online Learning

The Center for Teaching & Online Learning (CTOL) provides support to faculty on instructional design topics, Canvas support for online & hybrid students and faculty, and programs looking to develop, grow, or improve online education at South Puget Sound Community College.
 
We are located in the eLearning offices of the Center for Student Success at the Mottman campus, in Building 22. The CTOL facilities include a recording-enabled classroom, two training rooms for professional development, a green screen studio, media pods for students and faculty to use for individual recording projects, and a faculty-use office for online learning projects.
CTOL Services for Students

The Center for Teaching & Online Learning is happy to offer full support for all students seeking help with Canvas, and limited technical assistance with SPSCC email, student Portal, and other online tools. We also have media pods available for students who need to create or edit media projects, such as video and images.
