NYIT Hosts Online Learning Forum

"We can sit here and say it's not going to happen, but the reality is that it is happening," Director of Technology-Based Learning Systems Stan Silverman said in a forum, covered by Newsday, that focused on the growth of online learning at colleges and school districts. 

Silverman was one of four panelists at the forum, sponsored by the Long Island Regional Advisory Council on Higher Education, or LIRACHE. He and others agreed that the use of web-based courses and online instruction changes the role of faculty but also could result in learning improvements and more access to education.
