          300 ministers, to offer the ORU Diploma of Theological Studies Bible Institute
          program as a part of the benefits of the Network.
      e. Additional institutes are being planned to begin in 2007 in Texas, Missouri, Florida,

Course Development

   8. Make the ePortfolio assessment system a university-wide requirement for all students.
      Now all new SLLE students take the GEN 098 course that trains students in ePortfolio.
      General Education courses were revised in 2005 to include Residential ePortfolio
      requirements and to introduce External students to the concept of ePortfolio. All General
      Education and pertinent major courses are under revision during the Spring 2007
      semester to include ePortfolio updates for both External and Residential correspondence
      students. As of Spring 2007, all of our newly admitted SLLE students who take the GEN
      098 course are required to complete the SLLE artifact, “Distance Learning Reflection
      Paper,” an assignment designed to meet one of the SLLE’s specific
      proficiencies/capacities.

   9. SLLE continued to expand and develop online course offerings. One new online general
       education course has been developed for Spring 2007. In addition, eight new online
       classes (seven general education and one theology) are being developed and will be
       offered in Summer 2007.
   10. New online degree programs are being developed. Undergraduate Business degree:
       Seven new Business classes have been developed and will be offered online in Spring
       2007. Additional Business classes will continue to be developed into online offerings
       each semester, as decided by the department.
   11. Additional online degree programs are being planned for Undergraduate Theology,
       Graduate Business, and Graduate Nursing.
   12. SLLE is in the process of seeking HLC approval for the new degrees.
   13. Develop a free “Online Course about Online Learning at ORU.” The Online Course
       about Online at ORU has just been completed. Strategies are underway regarding how to
       offer it via advertising, promotions, etc.
   14. Implement a campus-wide course management system. Desire2Learn is now available
       through a license agreement with Oklahoma State University. It is available campus-
       wide for all faculty, and the system is being used for all new online offerings.

Faculty training

   15. With the addition of a new course management system and the conversion of courses to
       an online format, the need for more faculty communication and support will increase.
       Events are being planned to train the faculty to utilize the new technologies as they
       become available.
   16. Faculty developing the new online courses have all completed training at the Eighth
       Floor.
   17. Since Desire2Learn became available to faculty, there has been one campus-wide training
       session, and a computer lab is available during a specific time each week where trainers
       are available at Faculty convenience. Additional topic specific trainings are scheduled
       throughout Spring 2007.
