Members of the U.S. Department of Education’s Negotiated Rulemaking Committee proposed many options for the federal rules that institutions would need to meet regarding the state authorization of distance education. The Department was interested in addressing the concerns expressed by several negotiators. WCET’s Russ Poulin highlights at the link below what appears to be the latest language on the most important issues.  The Department is working on the next version and they have given us a chance to make more suggestions through April 30, so there is no exact language to share. Expert Poulin  presents his best understanding of what is currently on the table. (ed note:  of great interest to many may be the discussion of the possibility of granting automatic authorization to institutions enrolling 30 or fewer online students in a state… still developing).
