What we do
The Office of Technology and Distance Programs (TDP) exists to provide leadership, management, vision, budgeting, strategic planning, and implementation of distance education and technology services for the College of Education. TDP coordinates distance program offerings and supports faculty in the effective use of technology.
The COE began offering academic programs to the neighbor islands.
As the state’s largest teacher preparation college, the COE was tasked by the State legislature to increase the numbers of licensed teachers across the state.
The COE’s Technology & Distance Programs office was formed to plan and support teacher preparation programs across the state, including training and course preparation support for COE faculty.
The COE received a USDOE grant to develop online teaching programs to prepare more STEM teachers on neighbor islands. This grant supported the development of an instructional design and technology support team that partners with faculty to develop online programs.
COE now offers nearly 40 program and track options through distance learning. Learn more about our distance programs!
