About this webinar:

Dr. Scott Moore, Principal Learning Strategist at Extension Engine, talks with Higher Education leaders every day. He sites two recurring "disappointing" perspectives of some higher education leaders on creating online learning programs and courses:

"They think of the creation of online learning in terms of production and focus on delivering a standard product across all programs at a lower cost."

"They cede strategic thinking to those who don't think about market positioning, competition, and brand."

These approaches put the campus, mission, and student experience—everything that makes an institution unique—in the backseat. The bottom line: online learning experiences cannot be the same across 4,000+ disciplines.

Here's what you'll learn:
  • The roles of "standardization" and "excellence" in online learning
  • Determining who contributes to the strategic direction of online learning
  • What relevant data from the Eduventures and Quality Matters CHLOE report tell us about this topic


Who this webinar is for:

University leaders and administration with a market-facing view or profit responsibility.
