The Work Smarter (not Harder) with Google Doc webinar on Nov. 9th was well received. We had a great turnout (142 attendees), with faculty, staff, and presenters engaged in lively conversations throughout all of the breakout rooms! There was something for everyone in the various sessions!

Mahalo to the instructional designers across the UH system who collaborated to co-host this webinar!

Fantastic UHOIC Website Focus Group Feedback!

On November 2nd, we convened a focus group in which a small group of individuals met synchronously to share their user experiences of navigating through the UHOIC website and provided very useful suggestions on how we could improve the design, navigation, and online resources of the UHOIC website. 

We are so blessed to have such fantastic faculty and staff across the UH system who continuously volunteer their time to help improve the quality of online learning at UH. Great discussions were had with a great group of people! 

Mahalo to Brenda Coston from Honolulu Community College, Rheta Kuwahara from University of Hawai’i at Mānoa and Brent Hirata from Leeward Community College for sharing their thoughts, experiences, and useful suggestions. We will seek to implement their ideas in the upcoming months.

If you have any additional suggestions, questions, or an online resource you would like to see on the website, please email We always love hearing from you!
