Wichita State Wants To Increase Online Students

KSAL StaffSeptember 27, 2013

Wichita State says it’s working to improve the university’s online learning, with a goal of increasing the number of online students.

The university announced in a news release Thursday that it had established the Office of Online Learning and named an interim director.

The university’s new vice president for academic affairs, Tony Vizzini, says for many degree programs, no adequate online substitute is available for students working with instructors at a research university. He says improved online learning could help students and the university.

President John Bardo has said he intends to establish some full degree online programs soon. He also wants the university to attract more students who are 24 or older, and online education is one way to do that.
