This session will showcase resources available to support HBCU's in creating and maintaining online programs that expand their institutional legacy into online education. From learning design (based on extensive research) to content curation and student success tools that encourage critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving, we can provide world-class eLearning to all.

In the fall of 2012, Jackson State University initiated the JSU CyberLearning Strategy. Through a partnership with the Mississippi eCenter and Apple, Inc., the Technology Advantage Scholarship Initiative (TASI) was commenced. This scholarship provided tablet computers (iPads) to every first-time, full-time freshman. In conjunction with TASI, JSU began the process of mainstreaming the curricular program, Global Education through Analytical Reasoning (GEAR), designed to inculcate 21st century skills through curriculum and technology. The conjoining of TASI and GEAR has resulted in CyberLearning at JSU, producing a new learning community for connected learners.
