Who is EdTech?

 What is Distance Education?

  • We offer 17 graduate degree programs and over 50 graduate certificate programs through distance education. These programs are designed to expand the walls of your classroom and allow students to attend from anywhere.

 Who are our students?

  • Our students are working professionals who are looking to advance in their careers.
  • Most classes do not require live participation; however, live attendance is up to the individual instructors and should be confirmed with the academic department. All distance courses are recorded and archived for distance students to watch on their own schedule.

  • Some instructors may ask distance students to make a live presentation or participate live in a different way, but students will always know these expectations well in advance and will be able to plan accordingly. Our faculty understand most of our distance students work full time, have families and other responsibilities, and they're almost always willing to make reasonable accommodations.
