Wednesday, February 15 | 9:30AM–10:15AM | Harris
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Indiana University needed to organize and manage online education at its seven campuses to strengthen IU's regional impact, provide economies of scale, and promote on-time graduation for all students. In 2012, IU began developing a collaborative model for online education to leverage the unique strengths of each campus. It was determined that specific infrastructure, systems, and supports were needed to drive collaboration across the university. Although each campus is part of IU, all have different cultures, resources, and interests and have traditionally not collaborated on academic programs.

Outcomes: Identify the benefits and challenges of collaboration across multiple campuses in a university system in online learning *Give examples of methods for addressing the challenges of collaboration *Describe and show support structures required to facilitate collaborative academic programs
