Programs with Online Components: Program Characteristics and Evaluation Approaches

ABET has been visiting programs available entirely online for several years. The criteria remain the same whether the program delivery is online or in-person or mixed; however visits to these programs have some unique characteristics. Currently, at least 40 institutions have more than 60 programs available fully online with ABET accreditation representing all four commissions. The panel members will discuss characteristics of programs with online delivery and visits to these programs from both a program and a visit team perspective. We will also encourage audience members to be prepared to ask questions and share their experiences with online program delivery implementation, assessment and evaluation.
