Shoreline Community College President Lambert announced in August, 2010, that Shoreline would move ahead with a virtual-college initiative. In March, 2011, a 64-page “Blueprint for a Virtual College: Report to the President's Senior Executive Team” was unveiled by the Virtual College Leadership Team.
The blueprint concludes the college should take an “approach that will build upon the College's existing strengths: offering high quality online instruction at an affordable price. é Using this incremental approach, the immediate recommended goal is to improve existing online instructional offerings and to package them comprehensively, and é equally if not more importantly é to address internal process barriers in the area of student services.”
The college is continuing toward a vision of expanding online class offerings while continuing to serve students on the physical campus.
