What Digital Learning Teams Can Learn from Online Learning Companies (and Vice Versa)

Wednesday, March 29 | 3:00PM–3:45PM ET | Room 550
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Facilitated Discussion

Coursera, 2U/EdX, Emeritus…oh my! As companies like these mature, those of us in traditional design and edtech departments are finding ourselves in partnerships that fill gaps in our capabilities, but there are costs to these relationships as well. This panel will share the lessons from online program management companies, the skills and services that were most valuable, and the struggles of working with a unit separate from your institution that potentially has a different mission.
