Distance Learning Focus: Distance Learning, Lehman Online, Since 1997. We offerer courses online in both ways “asynchronous” courses, which are taught entirely online, and “hybrid” courses, which are taught partially (at least 30%) online. The vast majority of online courses are taught using Blackboard, the course management software that the University has adopted and supports. Data available from the CUNY Online Distributed Learning Network suggests that Lehman is currently offering more asynchronous online courses than any other CUNY campus.
