It's official!

Alabama A&M University is launching its first entirely online degree program next month! The University received its approval from SACS (its regional accreditation agency) to offer the bachelor's degree in management as an entirely online program beginning with the spring 2013 academic semester.

AAMU is a land grant HBCU institution founded in 1875 and steeped in a rich heritage and tradition of excellence in academics, research and community service. It's beyond exciting to bear witness to—and be a part of—bringing such an historical institution's academic opportunities to a global community of e-learners!

Learning Solutions 2013

I'm getting back in the swing between the Thanksgiving holiday, a brief personal leave and the chaos that ensues when exam time is upon us. While I put together my next post, I wanted to let you know that I will be presenting at the Learning Solutions 2013 e-learning conference in Orlando in March and I hope to see you there! Hosted by the e-Learning Guild, the event provides an open highly collaborative learning environment for e-learning professionals from higher education, government and the private sector to come together and share best practice as well as collaborate on emergent online learning solutions.

I will be discussing the course certification system that I designed and how it does double duty for e-learning administrators who manage course development by faculty and/or instructors. In addition to giving us a great cloud-based system for collaboration on the quality control process of individual course development, our course certification system MODELS the hands-on, project-based self- and peer-assessment strategies that we would most love to see our online courses rely upon for assessment of learning outcomes.

Join us!
