Led by their pursuit of quality throughout the online learning experience, and by their passion, Sharon Goldstein, Campus Operating Officer, Berkeley College Online® has announced the formation of a virtual Online Advisory Board, which will commence its first meeting – online, of course – in June. 

“We’re in the ever-evolving world of distance education,” Ms. Goldstein said. “With quality as our focus, I expect that we will share ideas, feedback and guidance on the initiatives we are pursuing and those which lie ahead.”

The Online Advisory Board will provide a collaborative resource so that each member institution can gain insights and greater perspectives. “We will operate virtually like a think tank,” Ms. Goldstein added. Mindful of the many obligations and commitments in which the advisory board members are involved, meetings will be conducted online via Zoom.

According to Joseph Scuralli, DPS, Dean, Berkeley College, Online, formulating and participating in this group will add to the College’s arsenal of quality online resources. “The Advisory Committee will be discussing important topics to help Berkeley College Online® provide the best possible education to its students,” Dean Scuralli said.
