The growth of online learning has been substantial. In fact, according to the Sloan Consortium, 31 percent of all college students today are enrolled in an online course. This number is expected to increase as the convenience and flexibility offered by online learning makes attendance feasible for busy adults. The U.S. Department of Education concluded* in a study, "students who took all or part of their class online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through traditional, face-to-face instruction."
Quinnipiac University Online was an early adopter of online learning technology in 2001 and has since emerged as a thought leader in the delivery of online learning to nontraditional adult students. In each course, the online learning experience requires student interaction and delivers learning using the most effective and innovative methods available. We strive for excellence so our students may enjoy the best possible learning experience.
