    • Overview
      The continuing financial recession, the deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression, has impacted all segments of the U.S. economy, including higher education and University-based e-Learning enterprises.
      We will discuss economic challenges three long-standing and highly successful university-based e-learning enterprises have faced and share strategic approaches that have been implemented to mediate those challenges:
      SUNY Learning Network
      University of Illinois at Springfield
      Penn State World Campus
      These profiles will be about 15 minutes each followed by an opportunity for a few quick clarifying questions.
      Following the profiles, there will be time for questions of the panel and sharing by audience members.
