Bryan, Charity; Leeds, Elke; Wiley, Tarrica
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v21 n2 Sum 2018
In the fall of 2017, the University System of Georgia (USG) embarked upon a robust study to determine the cost of delivering online education at each USG institution. An in-depth analysis related to the cost of online course and faculty development; technology and infrastructure; support services and; administrative services was conducted on each campus. At Kennesaw State University, the cost study helped to inform a revised budgeting process and identify areas that were being subsidized by eTuition. The results were used to identify efficiencies and address college affordability concerns.
