MOOCs, Online Technologies, and Competency-Based Learning

Wednesday, March 13 | 3:50PM–4:40PM | Room 550
Session Type: NC13
The online rush is unleashing enormous energy and is rapidly being embraced by students and institutions, but choosing the right model (hybrid, self-paced, MOOCs) can be daunting. Amid the enthusiasm, many institutions have lost sight of important questions: Why is your institution going online, and how is it aligned to your mission and values? Which students should be online, and under what conditions? How well is your institution performing today? What does it take to make the online experience compelling and effective? Join Excelsior College and the Parthenon Group to explore the online modality and how leading higher education institutions are addressing these tough questions.
