Benefits of eLearning

Quality Courses and Instruction

Miami University has a long tradition of academic excellence which took root over 200 years ago when Miami first opened its classroom doors. Miami’s top-ranked faculty are committed to intellectual development and academic rigor which is a critical foundation for a successful professional life. The faculty who teach on campus are the same faculty who teach in eLearning Miami courses, and they bring this same commitment to excellence to their virtual classrooms.

Student and Faculty Engagement

Miami is a frontrunner in online learning. We continuously push the technological envelope to create a more engaging, expansive, online learning experience for students.

Miami is a public university with a track record of success that rivals elite private institutions of the ivy league. This unique status as a “Public Ivy” was earned because Miami provides an Ivy League collegiate experience at a public school price. This carries over to Miami's eLearning program which is taught by the same esteemed faculty who teach on our Oxford campus. Their commitment to engaging and challenging students in their online classroom creates an unparalleled learning environment that elevates distance learning to a new level.

Online learning at Miami is available 24/7 -- anytime, anyplace, anywhere. Distance learning allows you to establish a learning path customized to your schedule regardless of your location. This flexibility means you can continue a full-time job or an internship across the globe while (virtually) attending the same in-depth classes offered on Miami’s Oxford campus.
