Charleston, SC, January 31, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Charleston Southern University is poised for even greater success with the impending expansion of its online campus. Currently, CSU offers an exceptional Bachelor of Management Arts degree program online through its evening college. In the Fall an online Masters of Nursing Education program is expected to launch with other nursing school offerings to follow.
Charleston Southern University, located in North Charleston, SC, has seen its online program grow beyond its early expectations, and now is switching to the Moodle platform with the help of its online services provider, The Learning House, Inc.
“Learning House partners with its clients to provide students with the best online learning experience possible,” says Relationship Manager Jan Hurst. “We saw the desire for more flexibility from the faculty at many institutions and chose the Moodle platform after researching many others. Our clients are very pleased with the new platform, and students have also responded very well to the change.”
CSU is well aligned with the trend in online education growth. “The traditional campus is not being replaced, but rather augmented with online capabilities,” says Hurst. “A few years ago the online campus was almost an anomaly, but today it is almost a necessity.”
Charleston Southern’s Dr. Stan Parker, Dean of the Evening College, says, “ In the online environment, our faculty get to know their students’ minds not just their faces. In offering the Bachelor of Management Arts degree online, we are acknowledging that learning how to learn has become the most fundamental skill that an educated person needs to master, and the instrument that enables learning in almost every field is the computer. We share the belief that online learning is the now big thing. The total eLearn solutions partner, the Learning House, Inc. has enabled Charleston Southern University to support local and near regional nontraditional students enter, change and advance careers.”
