ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Finalists to become the director of the University of Georgia’s Office of Online Learning are coming to the campus this month for their final interviews for the job.

Keith Bailey, who led the office for the past three years, left the university this summer for a job as dean of online learning and continuing education at West Virginia University.

UGA was a latecomer to online learning compared to many universities, but now has more than two dozen online courses in business, education and other colleges, and hundreds of online courses.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dFndT6) the university has especially beefed up its summer online offerings, adding high-demand courses in online format to the summer schedule in an effort to boost summer enrollment, which was falling, and to boost graduation rates.
