Widening Access to Virtual Education
Rhode Island Distance Education Resources

Wave Rider is hosted by the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education. Its purpose is to identify all distance education classes offered by Rhode Island institutions of higher education. The initial project will consist of hyper-links to all web and e-mail based courses offered by all participating institutions in Rhode Island. Students benefit from having one location to view all distance education classes offered. The user can also link to a brief description of each class and then be directed to a page that provides registration information from the respective institution.

If the site proves to be a success, the information provided will be expanded to include information beneficial to students and resources to assist faculty in preparing distance education classes. This will hopefully create a collaborative atmosphere for new and innovative ways of offering distance education courses (e.g. team teaching).
