The Center For Lifelong Learning, the independent division and online studying program of Taylor University and Taylor University Fort Wayne is currently redesigning its curriculum to provide higher quality online programs. By end of 2008, the online education programs of the university will be renamed and put together in the Taylor University as the new Taylor University Fort Wayne Online
The Taylor University Fort Wayne Online and its programs are designed to save money and allow students to earn degrees online instead of taking just one or few online classes. Chancellor Duane Kilty said that they will be hiring people with online education expertise to help them move into the new program.
In fact, the university already hired Jeff Groeling, former executive director of information technology at Asbury Theological Seminary as the new dean of online learning and instructional technology. Taylor currently offer two-year degrees but the university is positive to add degree programs as they are already in final stages of a four-year accreditation process by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.
The current online learning program of the university has around 500 students and the university is anticipating more enrollees when the number of courses that will be available in the new program online will increase.
