Task Force on Technology-Based Learning and Academic Programs

Interest in and the use of technology-based learning has been growing throughout WVU. This Task Force is charged with making recommendations for the further development of technology-based learning and academic programs. The task force should:

  1. understand the competitive context for technology-based learning and academic programs;
  2. inventory current courses and programs along with the characteristics of their participants;
  3. analyze institutional resources required to support technology-based learning; and
  4. recommend best practices to increase the availability and effectiveness of online offerings.

Online learning may meet the needs of nontraditional students in West Virginia more effectively than traditional programs. The development of online educational courses and programs, however, has been decentralized, and there may be a need for more planning centrally within WVU.
