Distance learning

The College of Nursing's distance learning program consists of synchronous-learning classes, which allow users to participate in a live video conference with traditional on-site classes from a remote site. Currently, students are located throughout Michigan and Ohio and dial in to class from sites in Lansing, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Marquette and Flint.

The College of Nursing has several multimedia classrooms. These allow users to participate in multipoint videoconferencing sessions. Users can share their presentation materials with all participants by using the computer source or document camera. The classroom has microphones strategically placed throughout the room so that all attendants can converse seamlessly, allowing true interaction between all students. 

Distance learning students can make presentations, take exams and participate in class remotely. However, there may be a few instances throughout the program where students may be required to travel to campus. Advanced notice will be given in the syllabus, and the distance learning coordinator can assist with arrangements.
