The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education and AACRAO are conducting a webinar that will lead participants through the tangled, tortured web of “state authorization,” particularly as it applies to distance education. Russ Poulin (WCET) and Marshall Hill (NC-SARA) will talk about what institutions are required to do when they provide distance education to residents of other states, how the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) affects those requirements, and how these issues affect registrars and admissions officers. There will be ample time for Q and A following the webinar presentation.
Online education enrollment has continued to grow according to the new report, Digital Learning Compass: Digital Education Enrollment Report 2017. The overall enrollment in higher education, however, has fallen in the past three years.
