The Sloan Semester Archives

A unique event in higher education occurred in response to Hurricane Katrina (and later Rita), which struck the U.S. Gulf Coast in August. Using online learning, colleges and universities from across the country responded in record numbers to help students and institutions impacted by the storms. Dubbed "Sloan Semester" the initiative provided free online courses to students impacted by the storm.

This site provides a retrospective on the Sloan Semester initiative, information about how it was established, how it worked, who participated, and the students who were served. The site includes links to an archived version of the Sloan Semester Catalog, a case study of the project, data about participants and lessons learned.
