Online Program vs Online Courses
The Office of Online Learning brings Wichita State classrooms directly to students through online courses and programs. Here’s how we define them; those taking online courses & those enrolled in online programs.
These programs are designed to be completed entirely online offering students the flexibility to learn on their own schedule (within a specific timeframe). Courses within an online program are likely asynchronous, allowing students to login independently of a set time to participate with instructional materials.
Wichita State students enrolled in online programs are on-average 32 years old and are often employed full-time while care taking for or raising a family as well as actively engaging in their communities.
These courses can be taken by students enrolled in either an online or on-campus program. They are offered to students through multiple types of online delivery including; Blended or Hybrid, online asynchronous, and/or synchronous online courses virtually (Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and quarantining practices had on-campus students considering online options too).
