Residents of the Coachella Valley, Joshua Tree and surrounding communities can now complete a B.A., M.A. or teaching credential program without driving long distances. Cal State San Bernardino opened a satellite campus at College of the Desert in 1986, and the two institutions are working in partnership to provide affordable higher education for Coachella Valley residents. College of the Desert provides freshman- and sophomore-level course work, while the Cal State San Bernardino Palm Desert Campus offers junior, senior and graduate-level classes in a variety of programs. The campus is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including interactive video conferencing. Daytime, evening and weekend courses are offered. More information visit the Palm Desert Campus website.
Victor Valley College Center
184 Bear valley Road, Victorville
Cal State San Bernardino’s regional center (High Desert Teacher Education & Development Center) offers upper division, credential, graduate and extended learning programs for the convenience of students living in the High Desert. Courses are available on site, by compressed video from the San Bernardino or Palm Desert campuses and on-line. Classrooms, computer labs and a teleconference classroom are located on the VVC campus. More information visit the Office of Distributed Learning website.
The concept of distributed learning implies a system through which the campus can more fully “distribute” its academic resources to its diverse and broad-based population, whether the issue is physical distance or merely time constraints. Distributed learning techniques engage students more actively (or interactively), and focus on helping students achieve class objectives via a number of state-of-the-art technologies, including compressed video, satellite, cable, Internet and on-line delivery formats.
