Noodle | November 24, 2021

New England College of Optometry (NECO), the longest continually operating college of optometry in the country, today announced plans to develop a distance education doctor of optometry program in partnership with Noodle, the country's fastest-growing online learning network. The proposed Hybrid OD, which is subject to accreditation review and approval, will combine an interactive online learning environment with in-person hands-on clinical training, greatly expanding the availability of optometry education to students in areas without nearby programs. "Students are increasingly interested in flexible learning opportunities that blend the best of virtual education with in-person clinical experiences. Noodle's expertise in digital technologies and services solutions will help our academic team create the most engaging, impactful program," said Dr. Howard Purcell, President of NECO. "Over the course of the next several months, we will work together to build a curriculum and education platform that benefits the next generation of students." The proposed program will require review and approval by the Accreditation Council on Optometric Education (ACOE) and the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) in order to begin student recruitment. NECO's faculty will develop the course curriculum, working in collaboration with Noodle, which has developed an industry-leading design approach to ensure that its college and university partners build the premier curricula for their online programs. The result will be a unique, engaging, and flexible learning experience where students have the opportunity to acquire both the foundational knowledge and in-person experiential clinical training necessary for a successful Optometric career. "We are honored NECO chose to build its cutting-edge hybrid doctor of optometry program with Noodle, which we believe speaks to the quality of programs we have built thus far, particularly in the healthcare space.

COVID-19 Is Accelerating the Digital Blending of Working and Learning

edsurge | June 20, 2020

In the last few months the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world and triggered an economic plunge in the U.S. that is now officially a recession. Even before this crisis, concerns were rising about a potential loss of jobs and the rising demand for digital skills due to technologies such as automation and AI. Now that potential is even greater, since historically recessions tend to accelerate automation and the long-term loss of jobs in routine occupations.
