A member of the UCF community is fast becoming one of the go-to gurus in online education.  This year, Joel Hartman, vice provost of information technologies and resources, was honored by the Sloan Consortium with the A. Frank Mayadas Leadership Award in Online Education. The award is presented annually to an individual whose leadership in the online education community has been transformative. Sloan-C is an association of more than 400 universities and institutions dedicated to integrating online learning into higher education. Hartman received the award at the association’s annual conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort from Nov. 9-11. “While these awards are great to have personally, what they really mean is that both our activities at the national and international level and through our individual contributions at the national and international level, UCF has been and is increasingly becoming recognized as probably one of the, if not the, leading institution in terms of our comprehensive online learning initiative – the way we do it, the things we do and the results we obtain from that,” Hartman said. This is only the second year the award has been given out. In 2008, Hartman received the EDUCAUSE Leadership Award for his work and is the only person to hold the leadership awards from both organizations.
