Strong student engagement drives enrollment and retention success, and how your courses are designed plays a crucial role in engaging students. Faculty involvement is also essential for successful course development and delivery. And quality academic offerings and strong student outcomes are the top motivations for why students choose a college—and complete their studies.
However, a seismic shift toward online and hybrid enrollment has hit at a time when most campuses are not sure if they can deliver a quality online experience. Consider these findings from the CHLOE 8 survey of Chief Online Officers:
- More than 65 percent of institutions are adding new online programs
- Only 22 percent of institutions report high proportions of faculty with course development experience
- Only 13 percent of institutions report that online course design is an important part of faculty professional development
