The University Senate discussed UConn’s plans to bolster, centralize and expand the university’s online courses program at its final meeting of the academic year on Monday. Interim Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Sally Reiss said UConn aims to be known for the quality of its online options, rather than the quantity. The university hopes to more effectively engage international students and commuters by developing a centralized website for UConn’s so-called e-campus. “It will never replace face-to-face instruction, it will enhance it,” Reiss said. For this summer, online courses offered through UConn filled up within 48 hours, Reiss said, and some reached capacity in one hour.
