Paul Krause, eCornell

Thursday, December 7, 2017
12:00-1:00 PM
Beebe Hall, 2nd floor conference room

Online learning presents important opportunities to innovate and to reach new students around the world. We’ll review approaches to online learning and clarify commonly used - and often confused terms like “asynchronous,” “synchronous,” “self-paced,” “expert led,” and “MOOCs.” We’ll look at online course examples and ways to combine different instructional components to build an engaging, multi-faceted learning experience. Lastly, we’ll share some lessons learned and best practices for online course development, and resources available at Cornell University to help you to take the next step.

Paul Krause serves as the CEO of eCornell and the associate vice provost for online learning at Cornell University. Paul is responsible for eCornell and collaborating with the senior leadership of the university and its faculty to facilitate online learning innovation and growth. Paul was formerly the CEO of Element K, an online learning company based in Rochester, NY. He grew Element K into a leading online learning provider before it was acquired by Skillsoft. He also co-founded Matrix Insights, an online platform for personalized leadership development. He holds an MBA from the University of Rochester and a BS from Cornell University.
