National Distance Learning Week | Webster University

Webster Online Celebrates National Distance Learning Week

Gorloks keep up with their online coursework, no matter where they go!Job transfers, family needs and work obligations can make it difficult for some students to complete their degrees; fortunately, online learning is making the process a little easier and allowing students to keep up with their coursework even while on the go.  Each year, more than 9,000 Webster students enroll in at least one online course in one of Webster's 30 fully online programs.  While several students take a mixture of online and classroom courses, more than 4,000 are completing their degrees entirely online. 

In recognition of our online students and long history in distance education, Webster University's Online Learning Center will celebrate National Distance Learning Week the week of November 7th, 2016.
