Beyond 2000: Building the Electronic Learning Community

*Inactive Historical Committee*


The vision of Beyond 2000 is a technological environment that makes significant contributions to excellence in teaching and learning by 2005. Faculty, staff, and students will spend less time on "instructional overhead" activities (e.g., clerical class management tasks) and increased time on direct learning activities that lead to more productive learning outcomes. Opportunities for diverse learning experiences will grow significantly throughout the curriculum. Learning in an online environment will be available anywhere, anytime. Multiple learning styles will be supported allowing more responsive solutions for all types of learners. Online learning will create enriched learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom.

Technology will enable the campus to transcend some of the constraints imposed by our physical facilities, and the distance education experience will mirror that of on-campus students. Our administrative and learning management systems will support an educational environment that prepares students with critical thinking, technology and lifelong learning skills for their careers and lives after graduation. This vision of high quality learning environments both inside and outside of the classroom will be enabled by a completely rebuilt network environment that reaches beyond the classroom to the wireless devices and emerging technologies that will be a part of everyday student life.
