Traditionally, distance education has focused solely on delivery of online courses, including little focus on student activities, clubs, and community. This directly conflicts with the longstanding awareness that community involvement, campus life, student activities, and institutional activities are essential for student buy-in, and ultimately, student retention.
In this May 14, 2013 webinar, the executive education team at Centura College demonstrated an array of approaches and techniques they use, within the online classroom and other internet-based utilities, to build the identity of the school and retention of its students. These presenters demonstrated different approaches that can be used within online courses, curriculum development, and environments outside of the classroom to promote engagement and retention.
