Professor Robert Hogan created the Online College at Florence-Darlington Technical College in the 1995 and received a $750K FIPSE grant to create international consortium of US and European colleges deliver international distance learning. In 2002, Dr. Hogan joined the University of the South Pacific in Fiji to do online research in 10 developing Pacific Island nations spread over 25% of the Earth's surface. With a World Health Organization research grant, he created and delivered the first blended chemistry course in the South Pacific. He delivered that course to Fiji, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands. Since that time, the course is now available in all 10 member nations, using new online pedagogy designed to internationalize online learning. At Walden University, Dr. Hogan continued his research, developing weekly live online mentoring classes for students writing their dissertations, and presented the findings at the Walden National Faculty Meeting in 2018.
