Transitioning to Online Course Offerings: Tactical and Strategic Considerations
Burke, Lisa A.
Journal of Interactive Online Learning, v4 n2 p94-107 Fall 2005
Much has been written about the effectiveness of face-to-face (F2F) versus online (OL) courses, and comparisons of learning and retention across both media, but less has been targeted toward important tactical and strategic considerations. Having little formal guidance to manage the transition to offering a portion of their university courses and programs online, administrators and universities appear inadequately positioned to execute their OL foray effectively. This paper outlines strategic and tactical points to help administrators better manage the transition to offering university courses online.
