A Strategic and Collaborative Approach to Online Education Compliance

Tuesday, February 19 | 3:00PM–3:45PM PT | San Simeon, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
The continuously evolving compliance framework for online education has created numerous leadership challenges for online education providers of all sizes and classifications. After providing a brief overview of common compliance challenges for online education (e.g., state authorization, web accessibility, and "regular and substantive interaction" requirements for federal student aid), we will share researched best practices for compliance as well as our own preferred approach used at Indiana University, which involves engaging stakeholders and collaborating across departments. We will then facilitate group discussion directed at supporting the compliance goals that you may have at your own institution.

Outcomes: Understand the current regulatory compliance framework surrounding online education * Recognize how to support compliance efforts, regardless of your position within the institution * Develop strategies for consolidating resources to promote compliance and quality goals simultaneously and with greater effect
