The principal mission of distance education at Frostburg is to enhance student access to the University’s academic programs. The University is committed to providing students the support and resources needed to succeed as participants in distance education.
Frostburg State University’s online courses, taught by certified faculty, are open to all eligible students who are prepared to learn in an online environment. Online courses at FSU allow students to pursue their degree requirements outside the traditional classroom setting, which also provides an opportunity to acquire the technical skills and learning strategies important to the pursuit of students’ academic and career goals. Taking online courses can also accelerate their time to degree. Most of the course materials (other than textbooks) are available electronically with use of the web as the primary means of communication. Some courses may require limited on-site contact between students and the instructor (e.g., an orientation session or proctored testing) at various times throughout the academic term.
Interactive video instruction at FSU is conducted through the University System of Maryland’s Interactive Video Network (IVN). This network provides an opportunity for interaction with other institutions within the state of Maryland and beyond.
