According to a 2009 survey by The Campus Computing Project and the Western Cooperative for Educational Telecommunications (WCET), nearly half of campuses that offer online programs report institutional profits from their online initiatives. And, nearly half of the surveyed institutions say they charge higher tuition rates for online classes.
The business case is clear: professional and career colleges that move online have an opportunity to greatly boost reach, enrollment and revenue – all without adding a square foot of real estate. However, moving to an online model is not simple – whether a professional or career college’s plan is to offer Web-only courses, provide hybrid courses that blend online and face-to-face delivery or complement campus-based courses with online tools – the challenges are cultural, bureaucratic and financial. Join Tim Naylor, Director of Market Development at Blackboard, to learn about a step-by-step planning process you can implement within your own institution to help ensure success. He’ll discuss critical questions you should ask yourself before investing in online technology and tips on a new decision-making approach that will either help justify the cost investments associated with moving from a traditional on-campus model to an online model, or identify it as an area not to invest in.
