The Role of Online Learning in the Emergency Plans of Flagship Institutions
Meyer, Katrina A.; Wilson, Jeffery L.
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v14 n1 Spr 2011
The study researched the websites of the 50 state flagship higher education institutions to investigate whether and how online or distance learning were included in the institutions' emergency plans as solutions to emergencies such as H1N1. All 50 institutions had identical directions to students and staff on how to handle the H1N1 flu, but two-thirds (n=34) did not include any reference to online learning as a way to continue coursework. One-third (n=16) did include suggestions to faculty to find alternative ways of delivering courses, using technology or specific tools to do so, but only one of these institutions actually mentioned online learning.
