What If You Could Hit the Reset Button for Your Institution’s eLearning Program?

Consider the following scenario: You are a senior administrator at a public college/university. To date, your institution has offered just two selective online degree options. Your board wants to increase revenue by offering more online or blended courses, certificates, and/or degrees. Your students are a mix – high school graduates, military veterans, and adult learners. Many of your policies and practices are from the ‘90s. Most importantly, your operations budget has been flat the last three years. Knowing what you know today, what would you do differently if you could hit the reset button on the management, services and technologies, and cost structures of your eLearning programs? With changing organizational reporting lines, what’s different today in your policies and practices concerning academic structure, instructional quality, faculty development, and student support services?

This webcast conversation between experienced higher ed administrators covered how to prioritize leadership, budgets, and technology options.
