Online courses create new learning methods

By Stephanie Mc Feeters, The Dartmouth

When considering how to implement new online technologies, administrators must reflect on the College’s institutional goals, which include providing an intimate education experience, Kim said. “We’re somewhat different, so it’s really appropriate for Dartmouth to think hard about how we want to participate in this larger education movement,” he said. The College is approaching the trend cautiously, according to classics professor Roger Ulrich, a member of a newly formed committee organized by the Provost’s Office to examine opportunities for online learning at Dartmouth. The College considers itself a “high-touch” learning environment, and values student-faculty interaction, Ulrich said. Administrators aim to use technology to enhance classroom experiences. Hanlon said that information technology has the potential to improve the College’s undergraduate offerings.
