In the wake of the U.S. Department of Education Office of Inspector General’s recommendation regarding Western Governors University, questions about federal financial aid for innovative delivery models for higher education were raised. This webcast examined the intersection of delivery modes (such as distance education and competency-based education), federal financial aid regulations, quality, and fraud prevention. The presenters reviewed efforts to define key terms such as “regular and substantive interaction” and “instructor.”
