Online Program Design Strategies to Increase Program Graduation Rates

Online Program Design Strategies to Increase Program Graduation Rates

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 | 1:00 PM Central | 60 Minutes

Online enrollments are on the rise, even as overall enrollments decline. As an increasingly diverse student body flocks online to meet their educational goals, online completion rates are not yet on par with face-to-face classrooms and are more problematic for students outside of the historically traditional student demographic. This online seminar builds upon information presented in Online Course Design Strategies to Increase Student Completion Rates and extends this challenge to the program level.
