UT to expand online learning pilot program
The University of Tennessee is getting additional state funding to expand an online learning pilot program.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports UT, in conjunction with the Tennessee Board of Regents, will get $1 million to expand the initiative, which uses technology developed for massive open online courses. 
UT is using the software only for courses it offers to students, but has seen success with it. 
We’ve seen in this year some pretty amazing things by jumping into this partnership and jumping into this big unknown of the MOOC world,” said India Lane, UT assistant vice president for academic affairs and student success. “ 
Four courses were offered this year: two English classes at UT-Chattanooga, a music appreciation class at UT-Martin and a college algebra class at the Knoxville campus.
