Online Program: Big Central Texas College

Without purpose of promoting Blackboard (which doesn't need any promoting), this link to a Bb Case Study is nevertheless an endorsement—of the professionalism of Central Texas College (CTC) in managing tremendous growth in online learning enrollments.

I have met CTC faculty and administrators in seminar setting and followed their growth over the past several years. While the Bb narrative serves to explain how the LMS supports the community college's online programs, it also concisely relates the numbers story:

Enrollment in 2001-2002: 15,235
Enrollment in 2005-2006: 57,484
Estimated for 2008: 92,000

For the scope of CTC's online presence, visit the school's Distance Education web site. CTC ranks 20th in the nation as a "top producer" of Associate's degrees and certificates. It is also acknowledged as a leading provider for education for military service members.
