Howard University in Washington, D.C., has announced a major new online education initiative in cooperation with Pearson Inc., one of the world’s largest educational publishers.
Under the new agreement, Howard will begin offering new online programs in the fall of 2014. The goal is to have 25 online courses available within the next several years.
“This new initiative directly supports the University’s strategic priority to enhance teaching, learning and research,” said provost and chief academic officer Wayne A.I. Frederick. “It builds faculty capacity to enhance our instruction delivery to meet the needs of the 21st century learner as well as our reach beyond our Washington-based campus to the world through our new partnership with Pearson.”
