A SUNY initiative designed to increase online access to courses and programs is slated to be rolled out next month, but leaders at local SUNY campuses say they don’t yet know exactly what form it will take. The Open SUNY initiative was first announced in January, and the plan has been in the works ever since. It is scheduled to make about 60 college programs available online next month, allowing anyone with Internet access to pursue an education from any location. However, north country colleges do not yet know how the new focus on online coursework will impact them and their students. “We’re just at the beginning stages of that discussion,” said Walter J. Conley, SUNY Potsdam biology professor and representative to the SUNY University Faculty Senate.
