Scaling up While Maintaining Quality in Online Degree Development
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration Volume 21, Number 3, ISSN 1556-3847
Lower enrollments in the freshman class are forcing institutions to make decisions about how to scale the processes for creating distance learning degrees. However, the scaling up in the migration of face-to-face degrees to online degrees does not need to sacrifice quality. This paper describes the processes used to accelerate the development of online degree programs at a large research institution. In 4 years, the number of online degrees, certifications, and minors increased. By developing processes before the scaling up, the integration of specific elements created high-quality online educational opportunities for students.
