There are 4 comments on New Team Will Power BU’s Online Education

  1. This article makes it seem like BU is just beginning a foray into online education, when in fact BU has already received multiple awards for its excellent online programs. Thousands of students have earned degrees in a variety of subject areas through 5 of BU’s colleges & schools. I hope that the team from Distance Education is part of CETLI as they have already accomplished significant work in the areas of instructional design and student engagement.

  2. I am pleased that the School of Management has discovered educational technology and the contribution it has made to distance learning. The Media Program in SED has initiated both broadcast programs in the School of Engineering and on the Internet. Graduates of this Program have provided leadership for the development of Digital Learning Programs across the University. This leadership has a history going back over thirty years. I hope that this pioneering work can be recognized and incorporated in this new organization.


  3. @HTH: I wholeheartedly agree. Shuttering the Educational Media & Technology program is a catastrophically bad decision in this day and age. Dean Coleman needs to rescind that decision. Instead of closing it, SED needs to build it up and grow it.
