Putting Community Engagement at the Center of Online Learning

The Campus Technology Insider podcast explores current trends and issues affecting technology leaders in higher education. Hear editor-in-chief Rhea Kelly chat with edtech experts and practitioners about their work, insights, and experiences.

What would a culture and community centered learning management system look like? The United Negro College Fund hopes to answer that question with HBCUv, a new learning platform that aims to reshape the future of online education for historically black colleges and universities. The organization has partnered with consultancy Deloitte Digital on the project, with the aim of providing top-notch distance learning, community engagement and career paths to students seeking HBCU training. We spoke with Ed Smith-Lewis, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Institutional Programs at UNCF, and Nathan Young, Chief Strategy Officer for Ethos at Deloitte Digital, about bringing the HBCU experience to an environment online, defining characteristics of HBCUv and the equity-centered design process behind their work.
