Engaging students in the online classroom is our passion

There’s a myth that learning online means that students are disconnected from their instructors and classmates. When you learn online with Oregon State University, it’s just the opposite. The Oregon State faculty who teach online work in partnership with the OSU Ecampus staff to provide students with an authentic sense of community.

Can a high-quality degree truly be delivered online? How can you support students at a distance? How do I learn science online? At OSU Ecampus, we hear questions like these often, and we’re proud to have the answers – as well as decades of experience in delivering nationally-ranked education to students around the world.

Online German degree opens the world for OSU Ecampus alum

People used to ask Hope Nelson how she learned to speak German. Hope says her answer didn’t seem adequate. She taught herself using textbooks and audio tools in high school before living in Germany for a year as an exchange student. But now she is proud to have a German bachelor’s degree from Oregon State University Ecampus as proof.

OSU Ecampus puts student success first

Our students connect regularly with a strong community of classmates, instructors and on-campus support staff – because at OSU Ecampus, we put student success at the forefront of all we do. We provide access to resources like social groups, online forums and one-on-one conversations because those connections do more than just facilitate course projects. They establish a sense of belonging for students.
