Online Colleges in Wisconsin

OnlineSchools.org

The University of Wisconsin System currently offers an array of accredited online degrees and programs through its many institutions, including University of Wisconsin Colleges Online. Some institutions also offer flipped classrooms. While Wisconsin has yet to adopt massive open online courses (MOOC) like other leading states in education, that doesn’t mean that MOOCs aren’t on the agenda. In fact, UW-Madison has started an “Educational Innovation” initiative designed to incorporate more technology in classes as well as possibly expand online courses to nontraditional learners. Other state-led initiatives, such as the ones below, have also expanded online education opportunities as well as prepared primary and secondary education students for college.

Higher Learning Initiatives

UW Flexible Degree Program

In June 2012 Gov. Scott Walker announced a new online degree initiative, the UW Flexible Degree Program. This program is a self-paced, competency-based program that will allow adult learners to essentially start classes at any time and earn credit for material they’ve already learned in school or on the job. Its goal is to help more adults obtain degrees so they can fill the gaps in the job market.

The Access to Success Initiative

The Access to Success Initiative is a project launched by the National Association of System Heads (NASH) and The Education Trust. It’s designed to help reduce graduation gaps for minority and low-income students by 2015. Wisconsin is one of 22 public higher education systems to accept the challenge.

LEAP: Liberal Education and America’s Promise

LEAP is a 10-year initiative of the University of Wisconsin System designed to promote a 21st century liberal education , which officials say is the key to a lively economy. LEAP is part of Wisconsin’s Growth Agenda, which was launched in 2005 to help promote more higher education in the hopes of a state-wide economic transformation.
