Mainstream Perspectives on Innovation in Online Education

Tuesday, January 30 | 4:15PM–5:00PM CT | Preservation Hall Studio 9, Second Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
There is a growing consensus among those who study the growth of online learning that this movement is becoming a mainstream activity across major sectors of U.S. higher education. This phenomenon has implications for management, budgeting, strategic planning, student- and faculty-related policies, technology investment, and quality assurance in potentially thousands of online programs. The 2017 CHLOE (Changing Landscape of Online Education) Report and forthcoming 2018 CHLOE Report, co-sponsored by Quality Matters and Eduventures, explore the current practices and future plans of mainstream institutions by surveying their chief online officers. This session will focus on their perspectives regarding technology experimentation and adoption and the implications for the pace of innovation in online learning.

Outcomes: Place your institution's posture within a national framework * Gain perspective on how to successfully address technology challenges in your institutional context * Gain perspective on the issues and concerns of current and potential mainstream customers for your product and services (for vendors)
