UC officials announce initiatives to improve online education systemwide

In a continued effort to improve online education at the University of California, UC officials announced a series of new initiatives to expand online course offerings last week, the Daily Californian reports.

Recent projects through the university’s Innovative Learning Technology Initiative, or ILTI, include creation of a pilot cross-campus enrollment webpage, funding for the development of 30 proposed new undergraduate online courses and ongoing formation of an approval process for cross-campus course credit.

UC Provost Aimee Dorr presented the initiatives at the UC Board of Regents meeting Wednesday, bringing larger issues with online education to the fore.

The pilot cross-campus enrollment system, which enables students systemwide to enroll in courses at other campuses, was launched in November, and new courses still in the development stage are slated to be offered in 2014-15 through the UC Online Education program.
