More than 200 ed-tech companies exhibited at this year’s T+L² Conference. Here’s a sampling of news from the exhibitors offering online learning products and services:
eClassroom, the K-12 division of eCollege, highlighted its suite of computer-based support services for virtual schools, including resources to aid in the development of online courses, delivering instruction, and maintaining online support. An array of administrative tools help new eLearning institutions chart a path toward success, the company said, and eClassroom also offers a proprietary content-management system designed to help administrators create, store, manage, retrieve, and publish content for both online and offline delivery.
Nova Southeastern University offers a way for the students in the school’s master of science (M.S.) program to earn a doctoral degree in a shorter time. If students have completed 24 credits in the M.S. program, have a GPA of 3.5 or higher, and have completed specific master’s courses, they are eligible to apply. If accepted, students complete the remaining 12 master’s credits in the doctoral program. The Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences offers five M.S. and five Ph.D. programs and offers online programs for both degrees. The M.S. degree requires 36 credit hours and can be completed in 12 to 18 months. There are four terms a year, each one 12 weeks long.
