A survey of chief academic officers at public colleges and universities found that while most online courses are taught by full-time faculty, their preparation for and oversight in doing so is highly inconsistent. The survey was undertaken by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) working in tandem with Learning House, a Wiley division that provides online program management services. Researchers received responses from 95 CAOs, representing a quarter of AASCU’s membership.¬†According to the results, two-thirds of courses are currently being taught by full-time faculty, and almost all of those instructors (98 percent) are “expected” to teach online as part of their regular workload.
