The University of Illinois—Springfield and Kennesaw State University are among the winners of the 2010 Sloan Consortium Awards for Excellence in Online Teaching and Learning.
Sloan-C is an online education association with more than 200 institutional and 700 individual members. Awards were given to schools nominated from Sloan’s pool of member institutions. Though for-profit schools enroll the lion’s share of online students, award winners this year included private, public, and nonprofit schools. For instance, Drexel University and Boston University—two private schools with traditional campuses—tied for the award for excellence in institution-wide online education because the scope and quality of their online programs matched that of their on-campus offerings.
