If so, we'd like to ask you to invite you to participate in a survey research project.
For the third year, WCET is partnering with the Campus Computing Project to conduct the Managing Online Education survey. The survey focuses on the instructional, operational, and technology infrastructure of online education programs of institutions throughout the U.S. and Canada.
My colleague, Russ Poulin, has written an eloquent post on the WCET Frontiers blog, encouraging your particitation in this survey. To save you the hassle of clicking all the way through, I have excerpted part of his message, below. Please click here for the full post.
YOUR INSTITUTION NEEDS TO RESPOND TO THE SURVEY.
<Sorry for yelling at you>
To avoid confusion, we would like one response from each institution. Given that some institutions are centralized, some are decentralized, and some laugh at the notion of organization, it is often difficult to know who is the correct person to invite to take the survey. There is no common position of “chief elearning officer” like there is with a CIO.
How Do You Participate?
Review the 2011 Managing Online Education survey to see what questions are being asked. If you are not what passes for a “chief Elearning officer,” ask around at your institution to see if someone has received an invitation and is completing the survey. If you need an invitation or have other questions about the survey, contact Casey Green firstname.lastname@example.org. He will help you out and get you access to the survey. Survey responses must be submitted through the online survey software and not by completing the .pdf linked earlier in this paragraph.
I’m looking forward to your participation, seeing the results, and sharing them with you! NOTE: THE SURVEY DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 16.
