The initiative will also identify programs that can help Indiana improve its workforce development and help reduce the time it takes students to complete degrees.

The $8 million will be spent over three years and will be used to hire additional designers and technicians, expand computer systems and fund an Office of Online Education. Money also will go to academic units on all campuses to develop online programs.
