California State University, Online, coming soon


The Press-Enterprise — Jim Monaghan, vice president for academic technology and distributed learning Press-Enterpriseat Cal State San Bernardino, is quoted in an article about the California State University launching a systemwide online university in 2013 that could eventually expand enrollment by 250,000 students.

About 427,000 students are enrolled at the CSU’s 23 campuses. Some students already take courses online or partially online through individual universities. The new system would provide a common site for those courses as well as additional programs officials plan to offer.

Participation by individual campuses will be voluntary. Cal State San Bernardino officials have not yet decided if they will tap into the new system.

The article was published Aug. 23, 2012. It was picked up by the McClatchy News Service and the Associated Press, and also appeared in the San Jose Mercury News and Contra Costa Times, among other online news sites.
