Friday June 4, 15:00 to 17:00 There is no charge for OLKC conference attendees The College of Business Administration at Northeastern University launched its highly successful online graduate programs three years ago, partnering with Embanet Knowledge Group, a leading service provider in the online learning industry. Embanet hosts our learning management system, provides instructional design consultation to our faculty, performs initial admissions counseling, handles first-line student services, and executes our marketing plan. Northeastern provides the faculty, content, final admissions decisions, and the degree. In this short time, we have grown our online graduate programs to over 1000 students, larger than all of our traditional on-campus graduate programs combined. Embanet will be conducting a two-hour workshop on online education, Friday June 4, from 15:00 to 17:00. There is no charge for OLKC conference attendees. This workshop will explore best practices in the use of technology in graduate education, from recruiting students to creating an engaging learning environment. It will address the full range of learning contexts from traditional residential graduate programs to fully online programs, examining the unique challenges and the emerging technologies available to universities today. Come and hear about how to create a successful online presence for your college or university. You will have an opportunity to engage in a lively discussion about online learning and have any of your questions addressed. While there is no charge to attend, we do ask that you register for this event. If you are planning to attend, please send an email to email@example.com and put “Embanet Workshop” in the subject line.
