UNT's e-learning, distance learning programs recognized in U.S. News and World Report

From a UNT News Service press release

DENTON, Texas -- Demonstrating that 21st century learning is more than just classrooms and textbooks, the magazine U.S. News and World Report recognized UNT's distance and e-learning programs in the Oct. 16 issue.

UNT offers 264 online-only courses for college credit and 277 distance education courses for college credit. More than 21,000 students are enrolled in these classes. The university also offers 28 distance education and online-only degree granting programs.

"It is a pat on the back for the job we are doing, and it spotlights the opportunity we offer for people to get degrees who otherwise would not earn them," says Arlita Harris of the Center for Distributed Learning. "Also, it broadens our opportunity to offer an education to others without having to build more buildings."

Harris also points out the Center for Distributed Learning offers a variety of non-credit classes via distance learning and e-learning.
