General Information

We are pleased to announce South Carolina ReCHARGE, an exciting new statewide and regional conference for e-learning in higher education! As you know, e-Learning and online education have grown into a vital and essential part of the higher education landscape in South Carolina and the southeast region. 

The overall purpose of this conference is to bring practitioners of online teaching and learning (eLearning) together with those that administer and support online academic programs. The unique design of the conference is to emphasize the practice of eLearning, including teaching, application, support, and administration. The conference will also include strategic “sharing blended cultures” sessions, aimed at helping everyone to Achieve Real Gateways to Engagement.

Participants will be administrators, faculty, staff and graduate students participating in or with an interest in e-learning and those with interest or professional responsibility for supporting eLearning courses, programs, students, and systems in higher education.
