When a professor wishes to take their course online, it requires more than just uploading their lecture powerpoints to a learning management system. They’re going to want to consult with professionals when recording the video and audio of their lectures. They’ll need an IT guy to make sure that the university’s servers or cloud storage has the capacity for the number of users. With fully online programs, they’ll need programmers to actually design the student experience, the semester, monthly, or weekly schedule, and much more. Increasingly, universities contract this job out to third parties, as they do with student cafeterias, health services, and campus bookstores. These companies are known as online program management providers.
