OTDI offers professional development opportunities and resources for faculty and staff around best practices in online education.
Ohio State Online Programs Network
The Ohio State Online Programs Network is for anyone at Ohio State (those with a lastname.#) interested in discussing Ohio State Online programs. Connect with each other, share ideas, and stay up to date on the latest news and research on online program administration, marketing and student support.
The network will have physical and virtual events, but Microsoft Teams is a virtual meeting place to allow for discussions throughout the year. You can join using the link go.osu.edu/online-programs-network if you already use your Ohio State Microsoft Teams account, or you can log in at microsoft365.osu.edu and then click the link. Getting Started materials are linked in the General channel.
