Abstract

This paper describes two model graduate level distance education programs. A description of the program structure is followed by a description of how that structure facilitates learner interactions. The programs distinguish themselves by their high retention rates and their ability to be self-supporting. In both programs, the high retention rates can be attributed partially to the fact that employers reimburse students for completed coursework. A factor contributing to the self-supporting nature of the programs is that each has an identified target market that keeps the seats in their program filled.
