    CC loses accreditation

    So, what do you do when you're the largest community college in the state and you lose accreditation for your virtual campus?
    You cancel a whole bunch of courses, that's what.

    Oakland Community College may halt most online classes

    Oakland CC

    Seems to be a structure and oversight issue, not necessarily a quality issue

    "A report to OCC from the HLC indicated that the college still had many steps to take to win accreditation for its online degree programs. Among them: Hiring an associate dean for distance learning, completing a review process for existing online courses, developing online course evaluations and establishing a marketing plan for online courses."

    Sounds like they need leadership. Certainly there would be denizens of this board qualified to lead this effort.

    I know of a guy with a Ph.D. who's pretty knowledgeable about DL, and he's actually driving a truck for a living......

    Hmmmmm . . . I know that guy, too.

    But if I remember correctly, he thinks that online degrees are crap.
