Sasha Thackaberry, associate vice provost for online and distance education, is being asked to replicate the SNHU success at LSU’s flagship campus, which had fewer than 800 online students enrolled in the fall of 2017—most of whom were pursuing master’s degrees in social work or business. More than 30,000 students attend classes at LSU’s Baton Rouge campus and Provost Richard Koubek wants to have just as many online students by 2025. You’re not going to get there incrementally,” Koubek says. “You have to change the paradigm.” LSU’s ambitious goal isn’t necessarily unrealistic, says Jennifer Mathes, director of strategic partnerships with the Online Learning Consortium, though without knowing LSU’s strategy she can’t comment on the odds for success.
