Online Degree Programs

E. Making the Move from Individual Online Courses to Online Degree Programs - Melanie Andrich, SC&I


With more and more attention being paid to blended learning and online education, many of us are facing questions from students, from Deans, and from thought leaders in higher education about the feasibility of offering online delivery options for full degree programs, especially at the graduate level. This session describes how to think through the transition from offering individual courses within a program in an online format to marketing your degree program as being able to be completed entirely online. Issues discussed will include curriculum development and impact; student academic and student life advising processes; budgeting and forecasting the build phase and the maintenance phase; marketing; ed tech support; and more.
