In a distance education program, quality not quantity should be the focus. Quality of the courses and programs offered not quantity of courses and programs.
But how do you assess quality without infringing on academic freedom? Distance Education has begun a strategic enhancement initiative to address quality.

For quite sometime, the Basic Blackboard Training has needed a complete overhaul. Originally, the training began with a tool focus, but a tool focus is exactly what we did not want faculty members to do in the online environment. I suppose you could say an entirely different approach was needed.
Faculty members often have a difficult time translating their in class "traditional" versions of the course to an online or blended format. If only it were that easy. If only there was some "traditional to online" or "traditional to blended" translation guide. It isn't that easy!
Of course, faculty members could video their lectures and post them in the online course shells. Certainly, they could type out their lecture notes and post them for students to read. But, would this be considered teaching? Does this engage the students? Does this result in that knowledge transfer that we are trying to complete?
To dive deeper into this subject and learn about online and blended course design, join us for our NEW online or traditional Basic Blackboard Training class.
