Sloan-C The Sloan Consortium Frank Mayadas, President John Bourne, Executive Director

Sloan Consortium The purpose of the Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) is to help learning organizations continually improve quality, scale, and breadth of their online programs, according to their own distinctive missions, so that education will become a part of everyday life, accessible and affordable for anyone, anywhere, at any time, in a wide variety of disciplines.

The purpose of the Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) is to help learning organizations continually improve quality, scale, and breadth of their online programs, according to their own distinctive missions, so that education will become a part of everyday life, accessible and affordable for anyone, anywhere, at any time, in a wide variety of disciplines.

The Sloan-C Pillars

Quality Framework Direct assessment of learning outcomes is % equivalent or better;% Faculty/students report online learning is equivalent or better; % Graduates are hired or pursue further studies Learner/graduate/ employer focus groups or interviews measure learning gains Organizational mechanisms assure standards are being met For example, organizational, departmental, peer or external review, course/program audit, standardized exams and certifications, job performance, graduate admissions, perception surveys and grades   Online learning outcomes meet or exceed institutional, industry, and/or community standards Progress Indices (in numbers or percentages) Metric Process/Practice Goal

Elements of Quality

Learning Effectiveness Interaction among instructors, classmates, content, and interface is crucial and takes various forms. Metrics compare online and traditional courses. Online course design takes advantage of capabilities of the medium to improve learning (testing, discussion, materials). Courses are instructor led . Communications and community building are emphasized. Swift trust characterizes the online learning community. Distinctive characteristics of programs are highlighted to demonstrate improved learning. On-campus and online instruction achieve comparable learning outcomes , and the institution ensures the quality of learning in both modes by tracking instructional methods, student constituencies, and class size.

Cost Effectiveness Cost effectiveness models are tuned to institutional goals. Tuition and fees reflect cost of services delivery. Scalability, if an institutional objective, can be accommodated. Partnering and resource sharing are institutional strategies for reducing costs. Mission-based strategies for cost reduction are continuously formulated and tested. Intellectual property policies encourage cost-effective strategies.

In conclusion, a beginning: “ The greatest real thrill that life offers is to create, to construct, to develop something useful. Too often we fail to recognize and pay tribute to the creative spirit. It is that spirit that creates our jobs. There has to be this pioneer, the individual who has the courage, the ambition to overcome the obstacles that always develop when one tries to do something worthwhile, especially when it is new and different.” Alfred P. Sloan
