Florida Memorial University, Oakwood University and Wiley College on Tuesday announced the founding of the Center for Excellence in Distance Learning, a collaborative aimed at helping historically black colleges and universities create distance learning programs. The center will work with Lumen Learning, an open educational resources support provider. Housed at Wiley College, the center has created 40 courses using OER and has another 30 in development to be released this summer.
Haywood L. Strickland, president of Wiley College, acknowledged in a statement that HBCUs have been slow to adopt online education. “Distance learning creates inherent challenges for small colleges where the educational experience is grounded in personal relationships that cultivate scholarship and leadership among the students we serve," he said.
