OnLine Learning Program celebrates 10 years


Last week, psychology professor Donald Hantula (at right) was one of 70 Temple faculty members to receive a computer camera and headset, donated by Logitech to the distance learning department.

During the April 4 Breakfast with the Deans in the Student Center Underground, the cameras and headsets were distributed by OnLine Learning Program director Dominique Monolescu Kliger (far left) to faculty members who are currently teaching online courses.

Later that day, technology and management expert John Seely Brown shared his views on “Leading and Learning in the 21st Century” with faculty, staff and students.

Brown, currently a visiting scholar at the University of South Carolina and former chief scientist for Xerox Corp. and director of Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center, has written numerous books on organizational structures and worker behaviors.

The April 4 events were part of the OnLine Learning Program’s 10th anniversary celebration.
Since its creation in 1995, Temple’s OnLine Learning Program has grown to offer 100 course titles per year from across the University.

The program enables students to take courses via computer (e-mail, listservs and the Web), voice- and videoconference, or a combination of the two. For more information, visit
