About Online Learning
Overview | Online Education Trends
We understand that today's student cannot always relocate or adjust their schedules to complete or advance their education. Whether you're at home, on the road, or traveling outside the U.S., OSU Extended Campus can open the door for you to pursue your educational goals. The majority of Extended Campus courses are delivered online and can be conveniently accessed anytime, from anyplace. We like to call it a flexible learning solution.
Online learning effectiveness
"Having an online discussion over the period of several days can allow for more developed thinking than a 15 minute discussion."

Online Education Trends
OSU Extended Campus has developed the Online Education Trends website to share with others interested in the growing field of online learning. Like other leading institutions who are developing online degrees and programs, OSU Ecampus strives to stay on top of the latest online research and trends to better serve our students, instructors, administration and constituents.
Your online classroom
Extended Campus online courses are developed exclusively for the virtual classroom by experts engaged in the latest distance education technologies. Student-instructor and student-student interactions are highly interactive and typically occur via online "discussion boards" where you can post comments viewed by all or a select group.
