Aloha, Kapiʻolani CC Online Instructors (and Campus Partners)!

I hope that your Fall 2017 semester is progressing well!

Please read on to learn more about this new pilot project that I hope you will consider implementing with your online students during the first week of instruction in January, 2018 (yes, 2018 will come sooner than we know!).
