As many adult educators in California agencies funded through WIOA Title II/AEFLA funds know, OTAN hosts a platform for online and blended learning that is available to the field to use. There are a number of courses available on adult education topics to use for free. Some courses can be modified by teachers and others are to be used in the original format and with the original content. OTAN provides technical assistance, training and ongoing support to agencies to incorporate into their curriculum and instruction the courses on http://adultedcourses.org.
