It’s time to get serious about growing online education programs if your institution wants them to be sustainable. This Arizona State University research project is examining the costs and benefits of scaling digital learning in order to share replicable return-on-investment mechanics and tools for any school willing to take on the challenge. What differentiates the lab from other initiatives of its ilk is an emphasis on seeking outcomes that can be put to work. “I got into this research business when I came to ASU about a year-and-a-half ago,” explained Pugliese. “What I found is that most of the research that’s out there — no matter what — is not really actionable. There wasn’t a takeaway from much of the research. That’s why I changed the dimension of the Action Lab to make it useful and implementable.”
