    Recently, the Chronicle of Higher Education asked leading education technology experts for their insights on the year ahead. Overwhelmingly, the experts agreed that thoughtfully developed online education tools will continue to attract industry-wide interest. Phill Hill, an Education Technology Expert, told the Chronicle that,

    “It is becoming more apparent that online and hybrid education work when the courses are deliberately designed. In 2014 we will see more real-world examples of effective course redesign focused on learners.”

    One such solution is our Navigate Respiratory Care Curriculum, a 10-Course Curriculum that uniquely prepares students for a rewarding career as respiratory therapists. Last fall, we conducted a pilot study for Navigate Respiratory Care. Midlands Technical College was the first to pilot three Navigate Respiratory Care courses:

    27 students participated in the pilot and provided their feedback about these courses. Overwhelmingly, they agreed that Navigate Respiratory Care was beneficial to their learning success:

    • 96% agreed that it helped them study and prepared them for exams more efficiently
    • 93% agreed that it prepared them well for their graded assignments
    • 92% agreed that it helped them identify their strengths and weaknesses
    • 81% agreed that it prepared them well for their day-to-day coursework
