FAU was founded 50 years ago as a distance learning institution using the latest video-taping technology. That tradition continues today with FAU leading the way. Classes are offered in a variety of delivery formats from video-streaming of live classes that can also be viewed in recorded versions, courses offered using online conferencing tools, and completely online courses with many of those courses incorporating interactive multimedia and video.
High quality is FAU’s commitment to our students with a fully developed online experience. Our classes are carefully designed to ensure online students are receiving identical instruction as our campus students. The courses are taught by highly acclaimed FAU research faculty using best practice teaching strategies. Our online student support services portal replicates what is available to campus students including video streamed athletic events, access to OWL TV and OWL radio. Students have access to award winning tutorial support, online academic advisors, financial aid advisers, career support, and much more!
