New post at e-Literate.

The University of Florida, based on a plan created by the state legislature, started UF Online in 2013. The original business plan was a case study in optimistic enrollment planning and the road-to-riches through online education. From program inception, UF Online was forecast to grow to a headcount of 24,000 students within 10 years, 43% of whom would be out-of-state high-tuition students, generating $76 million in annual revenue and $14 million of “profit”. Then reality hit. The first executive director quit, enrollment reality did not match plans, they got rid of their Online Program Management partner (Pearson), and they hired a new executive director with no higher education management experience. In my May 2015 coverage, I concluded:

New post at e-Literate from O'Neal Spicer (yes, I need to get him on G+). Spoiler alert:

While the academy is clearly divided on the ability of online courses to deliver similar results to in-person courses (a healthy tension that is likely to continue), more and more faculty are being exposed to online teaching and seeing tangible benefits. In the end, it may not be the technology itself, but the opportunity technology affords faculty to rethink and improve their approach to teaching that drives incremental, educator-driven improvements across higher education.

As every year, the lede is that faculty don't think online is as good as f2f in the IHE / Gallup survey. But why don't these two findings show up more prominently in the survey summary articles?

Most faculty who have taught online courses, 79 percent, say the experience has helped them develop skills
and practices that have improved their teaching in the classroom as well as online.

Asked about specific ways in which their online teaching has helped improve their teaching skills, 86 percent
say they think more critically about how to engage students with content. Eighty percent also say they make
better use of multimedia content, and 76 percent say they better use their learning management system.

In my last post, I talked about the need for educators in general and faculty in particular to develop literacy around data and analytics. But it’s really broader than that. Back when college was intended for a relatively small percentage of the…
