Cel Team Bio List

Florida State College at Jacksonville has been at the forefront of online education since 2008, growing with the increased demand for online courses, certificates, and degree programs. Our school has not only increased the number and availability of offerings for students, it has even taken aim at tackling some of the challenges of maintaining a successful online program. At FSCJ Online, we recognize that online education, or e–learning, is the pathway to a future career that brings students closer to achieving their goals with every keystroke and mouse click.

As a response to the growing demand for online education, in 2012, FSCJ established the Center for E-Learning, also known as the CEL. The CEL employs a dedicated group of professionals who understand distance learning and more importantly –that change is a constant and we must continue to evolve and work together to keep pace with the converging worlds of education and technology.
