February 1, 2011 | | Leave a comment Online education continues to grow as an industry. For instance, enrollment in web-based programs has increased by 832 percent in the last nine years, which represents more than two million students. As a result, many of these schools are receiving awards for excellence in this field. For example, officials from Capella University recently announced that they have received two awards for excellence in education. The International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) selected Capella University to receive the Chapter of Excellence Award and the Chapter Communication and Education Award (CCEA). These distinctions recognize chapters that spread and share the performance improvement message to others in academic and non-academic settings. “It is an honor to have ISPI recognize Capella University’s efforts to use technology that enhances learner and alumni engagement within the training and process improvement community,” said Rose Noxon, president of Capella’s ISPI Virtual Chapter. Officials noted that the Chapter of Excellence Award was given to Capella for its exceptional operations in programming, membership, advancement of human performance technology in the local market, support of ISPI events and opportunities.
