Hurricane Harvey Crisis Response: What Happens When Online Students Need Help? (ID 304)

The growth of online learning is having an impact on more than just technology. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in 2017, 80% of one institution's online student enrollment resided in the impact zone and was in danger of dropping out, risking both persistence and the financial health of the campus. The presenter will share how the institution responded, how students reacted, and what was learned about the academic and personal needs of online students during a crisis.
