Lander provides online courses in many of the subject areas taught by the university. Beyond individual courses, the university also offers three online graduate degree programs, one online undergraduate degree program, and one online certification program.

The mission of the Lander University’s Center for Online and Innovative Learning is to coordinate, promote, and provide quality control for all forms of online and innovative learning at Lander University.

This means that we provide support and training for every type of course offered at Lander, from conventional courses that enhance traditional teaching through the support of our Blackboard Learning Management System to hybrid courses and fully online courses that deliver all their learning experiences within the Blackboard LMS.
