Session Type: Professional Development

Join Malcolm Brown, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative director, and Veronica Diaz, ELI associate director, as they moderate this webinar with Yvonne Simon, chief learning architect at College for America at Southern New Hampshire University. The competency-based model of Southern New Hampshire University's College for America (CfA) requires a more personalized way to track students' progress than that offered by the present designs of learning management systems. This system must also be low cost and support quality (as defined by relevance to student and employer). Tracking postsecondary students' progress to degree in a program in which every learner is working on a different project at a different pace-without the boundaries of courses or terms-is a complicated yet worthwhile undertaking. Find out how this approach insists on a learner-centric model and a development process of continuous improvement. The presentation will highlight key design features that are replicable (and recommended) in all learning environments and share the challenges and successes of supporting them consistently at scale.
