      • “ According to disruptive innovation theory, some organizations use relatively simple innovations to compete in new ways and “triumph over powerful incumbents.” *
    • 37.

      • From where do you think the statement on the next page comes?
      • Enter your guesses in the chat.
    • 40. Does your school give credit for courses taken online from other institutions and sources of instruction? *
      • Institutions that arbitrarily refuse to accept credit for courses taken electronically from other sources have not made the transition to the current learning environment. That is not to say that every form of distance learning will or should be accepted. An institution's methods for ensuring quality control should focus on learning outcomes and how they relate to the academic requirements, not on the method of delivery.
    • 41. At the Macro level
      • IU 3+1 Students can…
        • transfers 90 hours of credit from a community college,

        • get a Bachelor of General Studies degree
