“We view e-Learning as a strategic tool for serving students and for helping the faculty continuously improve the learning outcomes of instruction. We want to create a learning environment that is convenient for students and allows them to opt for any combination of classroom-based courses and online courses to meet their changing individualized learning needs,” said Dr. Charlene Nunley, President of Montgomery College.
