CU moving ahead with 'On Demand' online education initiative - Sarah Kuta, Daily Camera

The University of Colorado is moving ahead on its new online education initiative, with a name and a website set to launch next month. With the initiative, for now called University of Colorado On Demand, the university hopes to be able to compete with other, well-established online programs such as those run by Colorado State University and Arizona State University. Plans for a new website and the initiative's budget were unveiled Thursday during the Board of Regents mid-year retreat at President Bruce Benson's ranch north of Silverthorne. So far, Benson has allocated $9 million to the program from his special initiatives fund, but officials say each CU campus is contributing additional funds to make the initiative a success. That early number includes $1.5 million for marketing and $2 million for technology costs.
