Is Your School Paper Online? This Month's Feature Article

Whether you have thousands of online students or none at all, it's likely that many of your learners go online to find out the latest news. So, is there any reason that your school newspaper cannot be read online? 

Lance Zimmerman, the director of Distance Education at Texas State Technical College, provides this month's feature article explaining several ways to move your news onto the World Wide Web.

Once you've completed the article, browse the other areas on the menu.  And keep watching - five new sections will be added to the website over the next few months.

What You'll Find Here

This Monograph is designed to help you plan and view examples of the best applications of student support strategies for online students available. 

Keeping in mind that the needs and resources of individual colleges differ tremendously, from the smallest rural institutions to large, multi-campus districts, it is hoped that you'll find strategies and applications here that will be of value as you plan your own program.

And if you don't?  Well, this is a work in progress so use the Contact link to send your recommendations for best practices and your own best practice websites in for consideration in future updates.
