Online education has become mission-critical to enrollment growth. IPEDs data indicate that year-over-year, all net enrollment growth since 2012 has been derived from fully online and partially online students. Institutions can no longer wait to expand their online footprint – and they can’t outsource it to an opaque vendor from whom they can’t learn how it’s done.
Watch this 30-minute webinar to review the most important 'checklist' items institutions must think through to transform and own their online success. We discuss how to:
- Prioritize your programs using easy to interpret market data.
- Organize and think through your instructional design needs.
- Develop a marketing strategy that will make you visible and competitive.
- Scale up your recruitment team to ensure you can cope with volume.
