managing online programs
The WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) has announced the results of its 2013 Managing Online Education Survey. The survey focuses on “practices that promote quality in online education, especially in terms of an institution demonstrating leadership or providing services that enhance faculty and student success,” according to the executive summary.
The structure of the entire program is as important as the structure of the individual course. And there are clear standards for assessing how well an online program is supporting both faculty and students. Led by Kaye Shelton, PhD, this seminar focuses on research into the seven key measurable aspects of quality in online education, as outlined in a research study by the Institute for Higher Education Policy in 2000, re-affirmed and updated in 2010 by a panel of 43 seasoned online education administrators.

A survey of senior campus officials responsible for managing online and distance education programs revealed some interesting findings, including almost half of the participants not knowing whether their program is profitable.
WCET and The Campus Computing Project share their findings from the 2009 Managing Online Education Survey with details on how different schools handle the operational, instructional, and IT issues of their online programs. The survey data are based on responses from 182 senior campus officials at two- and four-year public and private U.S. colleges and universities.
