As student enrollment has been decreasing at most campuses across the University of Hawai‘i
system, it is important for faculty to create attractive class offerings to retain student enrollment
and reach other populations not currently served by on-site programs. Providing online class
offerings may help the institution maintain its enrollment numbers and provide opportunities for
post-secondary education to individuals who are not currently being served.
Although overall enrollment saw a downward trend at Kapiʻolani CC between fall 2011 and spring 2017, the percentage of students enrolled in at least one DE class slightly increased. In spring 2017, 40.6 percent of Kapiʻolani CC students were enrolled in at least one DE class.

The intro videos were an assignment in the Teaching Online Prep Program (TOPP), an ongoing workshop that helps instructors move their classes from face-to-face to online.
