KU making plans for online work


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – University of Kansas officials admit the school has not been aggressive in offering online education options, but that is changing.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/154hr7K ) university officials are planning a campus-wide strategy for online teaching.

Education Dean Rick Ginsberg says the school needs to be in the online market to keep pace with other universities.

But university officials say they want the online offerings to reflect the quality of the school’s classes. So classes will not be moved online in bulk. Instead, the plan is to focus on specific targets, more complete online graduate programs and combining online material with physical classrooms.

Another goal is to offer individual online courses to replace classes from other institutions, such as community colleges, that undergraduates often take to fill requirements.
