Online Learning at Warner
Online learning continues to grow and has become common in our society. Since it occurs in a digital space rather than face-to-face, with most interactions taking place asynchronously (i.e., students engage with the course materials at different times), it has some important differences from learning in traditional courses that meet regularly face-to-face, as well as many commonalities. Our position is not that one is necessarily better than the other, but rather that each has different strengths and weaknesses. Quality is not inherent in a particular method of instruction and the ability to achieve the learning objectives of courses is not constrained to a specific modality. Therefore, all credit-bearing courses offered online from the Warner School are applicable to our degree programs.
