What you need to know to run a distance education program
Technology has disrupted the conventional structure of higher education in many ways. Perhaps the most dramatic example is the rise and proliferation of distance education programs.
As colleges and universities develop and manage these programs, they will face important and often unexpected questions:
- How should an online education vendor partner be selected?
- What's the best way to assess and evaluate a program?
- How can student retention rates be boosted?
- How can distance education programs be effectively promoted and marketed?
Concerned faculty and administrators are debating these issues to do the best for their schools and their students.
To stay on top of the discussion, subscribe to Distance Education Report, the newsletter from Magna Publications that helps you manage and run a successful online learning program, from the "big picture" to the nuts and bolts.
You’ll get timely insights and practical advice to keep your distance education program moving forward.
Each issue addresses topical questions and provides well-researched perspectives.
You’ll also get instructional case studies and best practices from other schools that you can apply almost immediately to enhance your own distance learning experience.
Discover how your peers are making distance education programs work for them, their students, and their schools in Distance Education Report.

Group Online Subscriptions
The Group Online Subscription gives multiple people at an institution access at a discounted rate. Included with each option is a full search capability for the newsletter and extensive archives.
The more subscribers in the group, the more cost-effective for your institution. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for custom pricing.
Choose from these Group Online Subscription options:
1. Personal Account Access: Your institution purchases a license covering the entire campus community. The institution's designated campus administrator will receive an authorization code to distribute to those interested in receiving the newsletter. These individuals establish their own personal accounts to gain access to the newsletter anytime, anywhere.
Benefit: You can view the newsletter 24/7 on your computer workstation,
mobile device, or tablet—wherever you have Internet access.
2. IP-Based Access: Your institution purchases a license covering the entire campus community. The subscription is available to anyone accessing it from a campus computer. Subscribers will not need to create a personal account to access the newsletter, but will have access to the subscription only on campus.
Benefit: No username or password is required. You get immediate access to
both the current issue and archives. Anyone off campus who has an active
subscription can also access it, but they need to use a username and
password and register with an authorization code.
Benefit: Magna will generate reports on usage upon request.
3. Learning Management System (LMS) Access: Magna Publications will create a unique URL for your institution that the LMS administrator at the campus sets up on the campus computer, which allows users to access their subscriptions through the LMS.
Benefit: You get immediate access to the newsletter without a username or
password because it is on your institution's site. It is password protected at
your end and can be put on any page on your site.
Benefit: Allows you to generate your own reports to see how many users
are accessing the site and the number of page views.
Benefit: The more users you have, the less expensive it becomes. Price per
user actually drops the more you use it.
Bulk Print Subscription: Discounts are offered for two or more copies sent to a single address. A group online subscription is more economical for group distribution in quantities greater than three.
