University of Montana plans expansion of online programs

The University of Montana plans to partner with Wiley Education Services to expand its online learning offerings.

The Missoulian reported Sunday that the university plans to reach a contract with the company by the late summer or early fall.

UMOnline Executive Director Maricel Lawrence says university programs that want to expand their degree or certificate offerings will be able to negotiate contracts.

Lawrence says revenue sharing also will be negotiated program by program.

Lawrence says all of the university's deans have expressed interest in expanding their programs, but it's too soon say what programs will expand first.
