Otis College has a long history of supporting e-learning activities, including many that were experimental pilots designed for capacity building that later became programs. In 2000 we began with web-based resources. In 2004 we took a step forward with the adoption of a Learning Management System and ePortfolios in subsequent years. By 2011 we began experimenting with technology-enhanced and online courses. In 2013 we expanded our exploration by delving into Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and launching a Blended Learning Initiative. Otis College in 2013 was positioned to launch systematic assessment activities with the formation of the eLearning Advisory Committee (eAC) and the college Instructional Designer (ID). The eAC was able to provide goals and planning while the TLC staff engage in year-long eLearning data collection and review for assessment. Otis College continues its exploration of eLearning opportunities while maintaining a strong commitment to providing quality education.
