Online learning at Lander University is designed by highly trained faculty members to be engaging, interactive, and collaborative. All our online classes are taught in our Blackboard Learning Management system, which provides a rich array of tools for content delivery and secure student assessment.

If you enroll in a wholly online program at Lander University, you will never need to come to campus. However, if you live in our area you will be able to come to campus any time you like to take advantage of our academic support services; to enjoy any of the cultural and athletic events that take place on our campus; or to use any of our campus amenities, from our recreation facilities to our library resources.

If you are outside our local area, all the resources available to local students will be available to you online. For our remote students, we have online tutoring and other support services, online library resources, online student advising, and live-streamed campus events.

 

What you need to know

SmarterMeasure

Campus-based students enrolled in conventional programs that provide most instruction in physical classrooms must complete a SmarterMeasure Online Learning Readiness assessment in order to register for online classes. This assessment helps students understand what is required in online classes, identify potential problems they may encounter as online students, and remedy any potential areas of weakness.

Students who have enrolled in online programs have already determined that online learning is right for them and are therefore exempt from the SmarterMeasure requirement.

Students can access the SmarterMeasure assessment through a link at the top of the page in MyLander.

Technology Requirements

Students in online courses and programs need to have reliable high speed Internet access and reasonably up-to-date computer equipment. Lander University provides a list of recommended computer specifications.  Some academic programs may have other computer requirements that differ from the basic university recommendations. When this is the case, the academic departments involved will provide that information. Some online courses may require specific computer equipment such as webcams, microphones, or similar types of supplementary devices. When this is the case, such equipment requirements will be clearly communicated to students at the beginning of the semester.

Support Resources

Online students are entitled to all the same support resources that are available to on-campus students, and all our support systems are equipped to accommodate students who do not have access to our physical campus.
