Digital Learning opens up new opportunities for Columbia.

This fall, Columbia will welcome its first incoming class of online continuing education students. Green’s team is looking at career advancement courses for the fall. Green states,“It’s really exciting, we’re looking at advancing the careers and entrepreneurial paths of our creatives. Some of the areas we’re studying include Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Data Visualization–things that will resonate with employment.”

In addition to digital skill-based courses, Green’s team will be well on their way to developing 10–15 online courses per year, which aligns with Columbia’s Strategic Plan. “[We’ll] work closely with the faculty here on campus to build upon the courses and programs we have already developed within ASL, Writing, Business, and Tech, as well as new areas which are true to the DNA of Columbia,” says Green.

While there’s still a lot on Columbia College Chicago Online’s plate, Green sees the work ahead as an opportunity for his team to curate the best online learning experience possible. “It’s one of the things that brought me here.”
