Tulane University School of Continuing Studies: Case Study in Online Quality Improvement
McLennan, Kay L.
Continuing Higher Education Review, v75 p181-188 Fall 2011
Online asynchronous courses constitute a significant portion of Tulane University's School of Continuing Studies (SCS) curriculum. Online instruction is sufficiently important to the School of Continuing Studies that it merited special attention in the form of a two-year review to ensure its quality. The review identified and implemented different administration-centered and instruction-centered quality enhancement measures. As all of the initial objectives were addressed, the focus of the initiative shifted to how to better meet several of the key objectives, including improving faculty e-instruction training and networking opportunities. Although the SCS Online Course Quality Review and Improvement initiative formally ended in July 2011 after two years, efforts to make online courses better for students and to provide instructional opportunities for faculty are ongoing. Online learning supports the School of Continuing Studies' mission to make higher education available in the communities served by providing flexible, asynchronous learning opportunities.
