eTech College of Wisconsin Plan.
Wisconsin Technical Coll. System Board, Madison.
The Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) developed the eTech College of Wisconsin, which provides expanded learning opportunities for students through quality curriculum offered online. The program is designed to complement other learning delivery methods and to be accessible from any location at any time. The college allows students to select the WTCS district(s) they will enroll at and take courses from, with all 16 colleges participating. Courses are priced at standard tuition and fees for both residents and non-residents. This paper includes an eTech College plan for governance, curriculum, students services, marketing, and technical support. The plan for finance indicates that the costs of the project will be allocated according to the following formula: 50% of the total will be shared equally by all districts and 50% of the total will be distributed in proportion to each district's share of total WTCS FTEs for the prior year. Amended operating costs for fiscal year 2001 are $419,000, with capital costs of $312,000; and projected operating costs for fiscal year 2002 are $599,918, with capital costs of $345,000. Contains 10 appendices, including curriculum project guidelines and contact information. (NB)
