Listserv & Hosting Services

Listserv & Hosting ServicesAcross the California Community Colleges, there are a number of projects, stakeholder groups, and organizations that need communication and hosting services. To leverage economies of scale, the CCC Technology Center provides no-cost Listserv and hosting services.

Listserv and website hosting are scheduled to migrate to Amazon Web Services to standardize architecture and improve security for the technology services we offer. Additionally, more robust collaboration tools such as BaseCamp, Podio, and Google groups are being explored as eventual replacements for Listserv.

Regional & Systemwide Listserv

The Technology Center maintains and supports more than 200 e-mail distribution lists with approximately 68,000 individual subscribers and an average of 300,000 broadcasts per month. The Technology Center also provides support and training for all list owners.
