Since 1868, Oregon State University has been devoted to delivering education to the masses, not just on its flagship campus in Corvallis but to learners throughout the state, nation and world. OSU's distance education roots run deep, dating to the late 1800s with farmers institutes and lectures from the caboose of a train.

Now Oregon State Ecampus – using innovative methods and technologies those 19th century farmers never could've fathomed – carries on the university's proud history of giving people everywhere access to a life-changing education. View the interactive timeline »
