West Kentucky Community & Technical College
This webinar will provide details on how a community college has created modular courses, which—using Hawkes courseware—have sustained increases in student success and decreases in student attrition over the past 3 years. The presenter will give tips on course setup and detailed explanations of what worked and what did not as the school further developed these courses.
