Online Learning Today: What Works, What Doesn’t

The journal Community College Week recently published an article entitled “Online Learning Today: What Works, What Doesn’t.” The author, William Wade, is dean of Online Learning at West Kentucky Community & Technical College, a school that began its online course offerings in 1991 when “the college introduced an English Composition course with an enrollment of 12 students.

This article provides a concise overview on some of the most successful strategies in online education today: consistency, engagement, affordable quality, and mobile options.
