National Distance Learning Week 2014

National Distance Learning Week

Each year the Online Learning and Educational Technology Team works together to create a set of activities in celebration of National Distance Learning Week (NDLW). NDLW is sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association. These activities engage our current students, faculty and staff members, and those members of the community that are interested in learning more about Online Learning.
