Articulation and Transfer of Online Courses



Students are increasingly mobile, moving between post-secondary institutions and carrying their accumulated credits with them in the expectation that they will receive appropriate transfer credit for relevant courses they have taken and be able to apply that credit to fulfill program requirements in the institutions they attend. Online learning has had a significant impact on mobility and transfer: students can and do access high quality courses from all over the world. However, this virtual mobility creates challenges for post-secondary institutions. The articulation agreements used by institution and systems to generate and record transfer credit arrangements have traditionally been negotiated locally and have concerned the assessment of courses offered in the familiar face-to-face classroom environment. Few resources exist that will assist practitioners at sending institutions to ensure the successful articulation of their online courses, and provide evaluators at receiving institutions the tools they need to make confident decisions. This chapter aims to fill that gap.
