  • 1. Extended Learning
    Dr. Sue Day-Perroots, Dean
    July 2007
    Mission is to provide seamless access to academic courses, lifelong learning opportunities, and student services through a personalized yet convenient process. Through investments in technology and innovative intellectual opportunities, WVU Extended Learning promotes greater educational access to improve the economic health and well-being of the citizens of West Virginia and our global society.
  • 2. A View of 2020
    The location of a college, and the geographic spread of its influence and recruiting area, will be the most significant factor in determining its flow of enrollees in the next decade. *
    The Northeastern states will see a consistent decline in graduates of about 1% per year.
    The South will consistently increase and there will be 9.4% more grads in 2020-21 than in 08-09.
  • 3. Projected Change in H.S. Graduates to 2018
  • 4. Educational Attainment in WV
  • 5. Question:
    Of today’s college students, how many of them fit the traditional image of 18-22 year, full-time, living on campus?
  • If you said 16% you were
    The “over 25” population is the fastest-growing student segment in higher education and has consistently increased during the last three decades. Peter Stokes, Paper for the Secretary of Education’s Commission on the Future of Higher Education
  • 9. Adult Learners
    Fastest growing student population
    The student body is getting older (25-44)
    Will be even more heavily weighted toward women
    Part time students
    Working full-time
    While the enrollment is projected to grow faster at private institutions, that is probably because for-profit colleges are private.
  • 10. Adult Learners
    Want sequential degree steps: certificate, AA, BA/BS, Masters
    Continuous enrollment, year-round
    Flexible scheduling and services
    Advising upfront and as needed
    Flexible payment and financial aid opportunities
    From 2007 to 2016, the population of college students ages 18 to 24 will increase by 11.1 percent, but the population of students ages 25 to 34 will increase by 26.8 percent (US Dept of Ed -Center for Ed Statistics)
  • 11. Online Learners
    Nothing is as likely to change the face of higher education over the next decade as the switch to more online learning.
    The enrollment in distance-education courses nearly quadrupled, from 3,077,000 to 12,153,000 from 2000 - 2007.
    Students (digital natives) AND adult learners (convenience) are demanding online courses.
    Greater than 20% of students are enrolled in at least 1 online course (Fall, 2007).
  • 12. Online Learning
    Associate’s institutions teach over ½ of all online students
    Community Colleges entered online later, but identified as central to mission
    Colleges serving working adults are most positive about enrollment potential
    85% online enrollments w/in 50 mile radius of campus – beginning to see change with for-profit private marketing
    1 in 5 institutions offered 1st online courses in 2007. WVU began in 1999.
  • 13. Why is this important?
    Adult student programs will more than likely be called upon even more heavily to generate revenue to add to the institution’s bottom line
    Programs focused on serving adult students are the largest potential growth market, according to demographics, in higher education
    Adult student programs able to serve minority students well will be better positioned to compete (particularly in the South)
  • 14. Importance– continued
    Online addresses flexibility in schedules & lives
    Online addresses access during commute, or from workplace, home
    Online addresses career focus and advancement
    Increases revenue w/o increasing physical infrastructure
  • 15. Who is our competition (really)?
    In West Virginia?
    Out of West Virginia?
