A National Model for Inter-Institutional Postbaccalaureate Distance Education Programs


A project led by the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance funded by the Learning Anywhere Anytime Partnership Program

Co-Directors: Virginia Moxley, Associate Dean/Professor, Department of Human Ecology, Kansas State University and Sue Maes, Senior Development Officer, Regents Education Communication Center, Kansas State University.

Institution Partners: Kansas State University, Iowa State University, Montana State University, North Dakota State University, Oklahoma State University, Texas Tech University, South Dakota State University, University of Nebraska.
