Digital Learning Regulatory Outlook: The Impact of the Pandemic and Elections

  • Date : December 3, 2020 12:00 PM
  • Meeting Type : Webcast

What regulatory changes are in the air for online, blended, remote, or any other form of digital learning that you are currently offering?

The session began with a review of the prospects of what the recent election may mean for changes for higher education, financial aid, funding, and regulations.

Next, the presenters highlighted how the regulations change when a course is transformed from a face-to-face to a digital format. These changes are highlighted in the publication: Pursuing Regulatory Compliance for Digital Instruction in Response to Covid-19: Policy Playbook. Faculty might not realize that making this transition is as if they have crossed an invisible state line to see that the laws have changed. This event was funded by Every Learner Everywhere and offered advice about how administrators can help in assuring compliance.
