A Strategic and Collaborative Approach to Online Education Compliance

Tuesday, March 05 | 1:30PM–2:15PM ET
Session Type: Virtual
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 compliance framework surrounding online education * Recognize how to support compliance regardless of your position * Develop strategies for consolidating and promoting compliance and quality goals simultaneously
