  • Markets & Size
    • Over the past decade, enrollment in our distance degree and professional education programs has steadily increased, with more than 2,400 students enrolled in 2006.
  • Trends & Issues
    • Less Asynchronous, More Synchronous
    • Connectivity
    • Collaboration Tools
      • With Video
      • With 2-Way Audio
      • With File Sharing and Desktop Sharing
    • Thin Client Tools / Web Based Clients
    • Portability
  • Future
    • WSU will provide a full array of academic courses and degree programs for our current and prospective students in a robust electronic format. That menu of courses would be available to learners at any time and from any location.
    • As with any idea we will pursue here at WSU, this must be backed by a strong business model. We must be able to support course, program and degree development and provide financial incentives for faculty and departments to engage in the Global Campus. To be fully competitive, WSU needs to provide educational alternatives that work well for the many different students we serve.
    • For a world-class institution, the Global Campus is a logical next step. Technology allows us to compete on an equal basis with any institution anywhere in the area of distance education. Given that level field, I am confident not just in WSU’s ability to be a player, but to be a leader.
    Washington State University President Elson Floyd On the creation of the WSU Global Campus:

  • Education for Technical Professionals
    • A technical workforce requires continuous, career-long education in order to support economic growth and development, maintain corporate competitiveness and insure career vitality.
    • Career-long education supported by companies results in increased employee satisfaction leading to greater productivity. Proven to be a solid return-on-investment.
    • Increased work demands, mobility and changing life styles reduces time for technical professionals to engage in continuing education and training.
  • “ What our engineers and managers are saying is that the demands of their jobs are such that they can’t get away from work. Since they are working 60 hours a week, any education they get has to be at their convenience and available online .”
