  5. A New Direction Fall 2001 • President chartered the E-Learning Task Force • Yearlong study • Goal – Develop college strategies for E-Learning and provide implementation recommendations

  6. The Charge • Task Force Co-Chairs along with senior college leadership developed formal charge statement • Allowed taking time to really think about what we were about to do • Allowed clarification of goals • Anticipated outcome areas • This turned out to be a real key to success of effort

  7. Call for Membership • Goal was to have mostly faculty • Allowed volunteers but certain areas were targeted • Incentive for faculty was personal interest and contract pay • Wound up with a mostly motivated group

  8. Timeline • Effort broken up into four stages • Co-chairs were very disciplined to ensure effort stayed on track time wise

  9. The Process • Full Task Force meetings every month • Subgroup meetings with Co-Chairs in between full meetings • These turned out to be crucial to success • Guest speakers at every full Task Force meeting • Periodic reports to Deans and President

  10. Recommendations • Delivered Preliminary Report containing: • E-Learning Vision • E-Learning Definition • Institutional E-Learning Goals • Institutional Recommendations • Specific recommendations in 7 specific areas (Pedagogy, Curriculum Development, Use of Hardware and Software Tools, Faculty Support, Other Providers, Marketing, Student Support Services) • Developed Web site with full documentation of research and other backup data for recommendations www.estrellamountain.edu/academics/Elearning

  11. Next Steps • Task Force has finished its work • Executive group now making implementation recommendations to President • Some reorganization has occurred to better prepare the college to support E-Learning efforts • Some hybrid courses will debut in Spring 2003

  12. Post Mortem • A very successful effort – had a beginning and end with defined results • Key effects: • Raised cognizance of the institutional commitment to E-Learning • Provided a solid roadmap of how to move forward • Development of E-Learning on our campus will be an evolving effort
