What Makes Our Online Programs So Much Better Than the Others?
We start with the teaching. At UIS, we bring in our regular professors—scholarly educators every one of them, who know their subject and know how to communicate it—and train them to use the technology. Learning first…then technology.
We get you involved. No sitting in the back row when you’re online. No ducking when the professor asks a question. Our professors work hard to keep everyone involved in discussions, not just the outspoken, outgoing students. That’s why many of our students say they are actually more involved online than in the classroom.
We make it personal. Even online—perhaps especially online—community matters, and we know how to make that happen among your fellow students and your professors. That’s why if students do come for graduation, they meet classmates and professors as old friends even though they are meeting face to face for the first time.
