New Directions in Online Education

Online education is ubiquitous in American higher education. Some colleges deliver most or all of their instruction online. Other colleges – including institutions with traditional-age students and residential campuses – also have embraced online education. And hybrid education mixes face-to-face with online elements.

This webcast will explore some of the ways colleges are delivering instruction to students online, and some of the innovations in learning technologies and pedagogy. Increasingly, developments in online education influence traditional face-to-face instruction, so tracking online education has never been more important.

Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Thursday, September 7 at 2:00 PM ET.

How can next generation lecture capture tools enable faculty to engage students before, during – and after class?  Can data streams from LMS and lecture tools combine to provide faculty with newfound insights into student behavior?  Will shifts in LMS and video capture adoption create opportunities for entirely new categories of instructional technology to emerge?

SoftChalk Webinar: Preparing Faculty of all Technology Levels to Teach Online – Blended – Hybrid
