Boston University Online Education – Online Learning

Since offering its first online program in 2002, Boston University has continued to broaden its reach with online learning opportunities that bring world-class faculty and highly ranked programs to students around the nation and the globe. Whether studying from home, the field, or the road, students in BU’s online degree and certificate programs have 24/7 access to cutting-edge course material, online lectures, discussion boards, and interactive multimedia content to help them maximize their learning experience in smart and exciting ways.

Online learning brings the classroom to the student, with expertly designed and constructed courses that challenge the notion that the most effective learning is face-to-face. Students study with the same BU faculty who teach on campus, and benefit from easy access to recorded lectures from professors and visiting experts, readings, support material, case studies, student services, and other resources—most of which are available any time, day or night. It’s high quality, rigorous academic content, designed for students who seek to learn on their own terms and on their schedule.

Along with developing their online curricula, BU’s Distance Education team works closely with BU faculty to introduce new tools, apps, and innovative uses of technology to the online environment, designing and producing courses that truly extend the capabilities of the traditional classroom. Continuous innovation and rigorous quality control has earned BU a position on the vanguard of distance learning, and has led to numerous accolades and awards.
