Welcome to DECT! Currently accepting applications for Fall 2012
Distance education comprises the fastest growing delivery mode in
California community colleges (CCCs). In order to provide access to
all students and to comply with federal and state law, some
components of distance education classes may need to provide
captioning or transcriptions.
The Distance Education Captioning and Transcription grant (DECT) provides CCCs with funding for live and asynchronous captioning and transcription as a means of enhancing the access of all students to distance education courses. Further, the DECT promotes and supports awareness of available funding as a means to support faculty efforts to develop high-quality, media-rich distance learning courses.

FCCC Pre-Approved Vendor List
If an award is not used in the term for which you applied, your award will automatically be closed at the end of that term and the monies will be returned to the pool of funds that may be awarded to other colleges. If you have unused funds by the end of a term and still have captioning/transcription needs, please submit a new application for the following term. For example, you were awarded $1,000 for a project to be completed during the Spring semester and you did not use these funds before the end of the Spring semester. Your award will automatically expire and the $1,000 will return to the pool of monies that may be awarded to other colleges. If it turns out that the project you planned for Spring will be delayed until the Fall semester, please submit a new application for Fall.
