OD: Education is Becoming “Anytime, Anywhere” – Preparing for the New Normal

Recorded on: Monday, October 22, 2012 1:00 PM EDT


Colleges and universities are rapidly expanding their programs beyond their specific geographic campuses, creating opportunities for them and threats to those institutions that fail to respond to those initiatives. The initiatives include creating branch campuses in other parts of the United States as well as internationally. The initiatives also include online and "blended" courses and degrees which will directly compete (we'll explain how) with your institution. New entities have been established by distinguished faculty and leading universities to offer online courses that will also compete with your institution (again, we'll explain how).
The webcast will review these new initiatives and describe how they are both a threat and an opportunity for your college or university.
