New website survey results

New homepage

This summer Ecampus asked you what your thoughts were on the redesigned Extended Campus website.  We found that 85 percent of you had a positive to very positive impression of our new site. The top strengths you noted focused on navigation, easy-to-read text and design.  Our survey winner, Nihar Mandavia, is a pharmacist and is now scheduled to take Ecampus courses because he said that "e-learning is the only way that I can attend classes while working full time."  Have a question or comment about our website's new look?  Email us at ecampus@oregonstate.eduRead Nihar's story...
