What did you do in 1995
What did you do in 1995?

The longer and more fixed the schedule of courses, the less likely students are to complete a course.

Given 1995 conditions, how might this have been addressed from your role in the institution?



What do you do in 2007

The longer and more fixed the schedule of courses, the less likely students are to complete a course.

Given 2007 conditions, how might this be addressed from your role in the institution?

I’m kind of interested in that thing I saw…

Hmm, I may have to change what I am doing.

I sure am spending a lot of time managing it.

Is what I am doing really helping students?

I bet I can adapt from what others are doing.

Gee, my ideas may work better than what others have done!

  • Macro- developing national curriculum, specifying qualification standards= societal or system

  • Micro - preparing course materials, designing learning environment = classroom


According to disruptive innovation theory, some organizations use relatively simple innovations to compete in new ways and “triumph over powerful incumbents.”


Re thinking how degrees work
Re-thinking how degrees work organizations use relatively simple innovations to compete in new ways and “triumph over powerful incumbents.”

Consortia? Collaborations? Credit for experience? Cross-institutional flexibility?


From where do you think the following statement comes? organizations use relatively simple innovations to compete in new ways and “triumph over powerful incumbents.”


Does your school give credit for courses taken online from other institutions and sources of instruction?

Institutions that arbitrarily refuse to accept credit for courses taken electronically from other sources have not made the transition to the current learning environment. That is not to say that every form of distance learning will or should be accepted. An institution's methods for ensuring quality control should focus on learning outcomes and how they relate to the academic requirements, not on the method of delivery.


At the macro level
At the Macro level other institutions and sources of instruction?

IU3+1 Students can…

  • transfers 90 hours of credit from a community college,

  • take 30 credit hours via distance learning

  • from IU,

  • pay in-state tuition rates for IU courses,

  • get a Bachelor of General Studies degree

What are tested strategies
What are tested strategies? other institutions and sources of instruction?

Four models of tech-supported instruction


Course design distributed engagement
Course Design: other institutions and sources of instruction?Distributed Engagement

This approach allows the learner to complete instructional sequences at his or her own pace, in various learning environments and with various supports. Usable for both campus and distributed environments, the intent is to allow students to progress through material in the way and speed that is most appropriate for the individual. Also known as the Emporium Model (NCAT).
