LSU Online learning generates University revenue - Rose Velazquez, LSU Reveille

With the dread of impending budget cuts looming for Louisiana higher education, online learning could help keep the University afloat, said LSU Online Interim Director and Instructional Design Consultant Amanda Major. With 378 students from all over the country enrolled in various online degree programs, Major said LSU Online will continue to be a source of revenue for the University. While a portion of the revenue generated by LSU Online goes back into the program, it also goes toward funding several University positions. “We’re hoping that because we’re generating revenue for the University … we can counteract [the budget cuts] to help the University continue to operate and function,” Major said. http://www.lsureveille.com/daily/online-learning-generates-university-revenue/article_eaf126ca-b0af-11e4-a6ef-0f21484737c7.html
