Getting Education Continuity

E-learning has long been a central part of George Washington University’s plan for education continuity. Prompted by concerns over the H1N1 flu, GWU officials have now stepped up preparedness efforts — much like their counterparts at schools and universities nationwide — according to Blackboard Inc.

Having already set minimum e-learning competency standards for faculty and staff, GWU has now launched a series of workshops in partnership with Blackboard consultants to give staff the chance to gain more confidence in the key areas of holding classes online: posting course materials, creating assignments and using communication tools like discussion boards and forums.
