Short Description

Accelerating Students Forward to Excellence with UCF Online

UCF is accelerating students forward to excellence by expanding the reach of an affordable higher education through the new fully-online initiative, UCF Online. This initiative includes student access to Success Coaches, from inquiry through graduation from their UCF Online program, and the waiver of some campus-based fees. UCF Online partnerships have been formed with some Florida state college partners. As an additional value, these partnerships include the student benefit of access to the OnRamp web course to familiarize them with UCF and UCF Online, and to promote a sense of community.

Abstract

Accelerating Students Forward to Excellence with UCF Online

The Center for Distributed Learning, in the Division of Digital Learning at the University of Central Florida (UCF), has been instrumental in driving the use of educational technology to expand online teaching and learning opportunities. The advances have occurred while retaining the level of excellence for which its online learning has been nationally recognized and awarded over the last 20 years. As online educational trends have evolved due to a demand for more expansive offerings, the fully-online UCF Online initiative was born. UCF is accelerating students forward to excellence by expanding the reach of an affordable higher education with UCF Online. Reaching educational goals is attainable regardless of geographical limitations or life circumstances.

The initial phase of UCF Online is designed to primarily serve transfer students in the state of Florida, as well as masters and doctoral students. To foster Florida state college transfer student transitions to UCF Online, partnerships are formed between UCF and some Florida state colleges.

UCF Online students may take advantage of many student benefits in addition to having exclusive access to UCF Online Success Coaches. Since UCF Online programs are fully-online, there is a waiver of some campus-based fees that also reduces access to some on-campus student resources and services.

During this poster session discussions will highlight the relationships and responsibilities of institutional partners that support the fully-online UCF Online initiative, UCF Online student benefits, relationship and responsibilities of UCF and partnering Florida state colleges, and the OnRamp community. The session is intended for institution administrators or leaders that support and promote online learning, and are considering expanding an existing or adding a fully-online learning initiative.
