Distance Learning Program

The University has been meeting the learning needs of off-campus students since 1979 through its pioneering distance learning program. With the advances in Internet technology, the University is now able to serve students anywhere in the world. Distance learning provides college credit courses and degrees to people who cannot pursue undergraduate or graduate study in a traditional on-campus setting. The University’s Moodle platform offers Web-based distance learning courses which do not require live attendance. This asynchronous teaching method is very adaptable for students who cannot commit themselves to a particular day and time for class sessions.

In addition to Moodle, the University also utilizes the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra system in select courses to provide live Internet communication between instructor and students, offering a very personal and interactive experience while saving students travel time and relocation expenses.
