Pearson Embanet projected to get $186 m for U Florida Online over 11-year period, mostly based on revenue sharing.

The University of Florida will pay Pearson Embanet an estimated $186 million over the life of its 11-year contract — a combination of direct payments and a share of tuition revenue — to help launch and manage the state's first fully online, four-year degree program. [snip]

Under its new contract with UF, Pearson is responsible for creating "proprietary digital content," providing admission and enrollment support, generating leads and signing new students, tracking retention rates, engaging in joint research and development, and providing on-demand student support.

The company is motivated, McCollough said. Recruiting and retaining students is key to Pearson's ability to recoup its investment over the long term, McCollough said.

The legislative subsidies end in 2019, at which point the program is supposed to be self-sufficient, McCollough said.

After 2018, UF will also stop paying Pearson directly and Pearson's income will come entirely from its share of tuition revenue and any fees it charges. UF projects it will have over 13,000 students in UF Online generating $43 million in tuition revenue by 2019 — of which Pearson will get close to $19 million.

Inside Higher Ed interviews some of the parties at UF Online to try and explain why the exec director abruptly resigned. But note that Phillips herself did not respond to interview request. Something doesn't add up.

Until Florida can fill the position, W. Andrew McCollough, associate provost for teaching and technology, will lead UF Online. He said Phillips has chosen to return to ASU as a faculty member.

"She, in discussing the matter with me, had evinced after she had gotten herself immersed in the management of and the directing of UF Online that her first love at this point was functioning as a faculty member and doing research on online learning," McCollough said. "It became evident to her that she would have difficulties fitting that preference into her waking hours here at the university."

Janine Sikes, assistant vice president for media relations and public affairs at Florida, said Phillips will "pursue research into effective systems for personalized and adaptive learning" at ASU.

One of my responsibilities in my new part time position is to research and review new online instructional resources for faculty development. This is a great one - I hope to include it in our repository. Well done!

I have been revisiting Barkley, Cross & Major's Collaborative Learning Techniques and feel that, in many cases, a quick synchronous meeting would facilitate part or all of several of their CoLTs.
