Distance Education at College of Alameda

Welcome to Distance Education at College of Alameda

We are currently using both the Moodle and Canvas learning management systems for online classes. Transition from Moodle to Canvas should be completed by the end of Summer 2018. We are very excited about sharing our new virtual learning environment with you on Canvas, and we appreciate your patience during our conversion.
