Are you thinking about bringing a course or program online? Maybe you have an idea for a certificate, minor or an entirely new program, but you’re not sure where to start. Our consultation team can assist you, your department and your faculty with getting started. Support comes in many ways, including:
- Concept development
- Market research and feasibility studies
- Guidance with policy and procedure
- Questions about the revenue model
- Recruiting and marketing
Our consultation team is happy to meet individually with anyone considering taking that first or second step. We also welcome the opportunity to speak briefly at your next faculty meeting or retreat to answer any questions you may have about what taking a program or series of courses online would entail.
Each college has a coordinator assigned to it. He or she is your dedicated point of contact. That person’s mission is to support not only your needs but your students’ as well with any questions they may have while enrolled in their program.
Who would be interested in the program you’re considering? How robust is the job market for graduates of that program? Is the program being offered by other universities? It’s wise to do your research before you go too far. Our in-house team can provide comparability studies, MSU statistics for online programs and much more to help you in your planning.
However, your questions may require a deeper dive. For that, we have partnered with the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to conduct market research studies via the Continuing and Online Education Forum. If you are interested in learning more about the type of research that EAB can provide, please contact Marian Montgomery Chancellor for a consultation.
