Nova Southeastern University NSU

Online

NSU students can participate in online courses from any location in the world with an Internet connection. Online courses use a Web-based instructional platform as a centralized location for educational materials, course content, and communication—both synchronous and asynchronous. The online course platform enables a wide range of online activities that facilitate frequent student-teacher and student-student interaction.

Faculty members and students interact via real-time electronic classrooms, discussion forums via threaded bulletin boards, real-time electronic classrooms that support graphical presentations and audio, and online submission of assignments in multimedia formats. NSU provides an email address and a directory for publishing assignments and resources to the Web for all students and faculty members. The Electronic Library provides access to online databases, many of which contain full-text documents.

NSU offers a wide range of online programs. Seventy-six of the university’s online undergraduate, master’s, doctoral, and graduate certificate programs have been certified by the Southern Regional Education Board’s Electronic Campus, and are offered through this highly successful consortium. The SREB certifies that the online programs and courses it approves for this program are in full compliance with its comprehensive set of Principles of Good Practice.
