Remote vs. Online Learning

They are not the same.

Learning remotely happens when students can no longer be in the same classroom. Learning online happens when you get an education that rivals the classroom experience. That's the UND difference. We began educating at a distance in 1911 with correspondence-by-mail courses. Today, UND remains the leader in online education in our 8-state region.
