Distance Learning

Distance Learning Focus:
The Office of Distance Education was born out of the desire to combine proven instructional design strategies with the most effective pedagogical principles in a dynamic online environment to meet the diverse needs of our students.  We provide a “one stop shop” to offer support for faculty, staff and students in the area of teaching and learning.

“Modality” Hybrid and Asynchronous:
Online courses are offered in a variety of formats, including blended/hybrid, synchronous and asynchronous models.  The “modality” of instruction is determined by the instructor and is based on the most appropriate delivery model determined by course subject matter and course design.

Number of Courses and Programs:
224 courses approved to be taught online.  Online course offerings vary each semester.

Online Programs Available:
Masters in Library Science/Instructional Technology: Classes are offered in a variety of flexible formats including face-to-face, online, and hybrid (a combination of face-to-face and online meetings).  This program is designed for working adults who wish to enhance their technology skills while earning their master’s degree. The Instructional Technology program prepares educators for the 21st Century classroom and online teaching environments.
