ECSU Distance Education: Distance Education at Elizabeth City State University offers students the option to achieve educational goals without attending traditional on-campus classes. Elizabeth City State University offers courses both at off-campus sites and online. Online courses allow students to access their courses anytime and anywhere via the Internet. ECSU faculty participate in extensive professional development to enable them to develop and teach online courses. Online courses are equivalent to in-class courses, except for the primary delivery method, the Internet. All online courses are taught using the Blackboard course management system. A course management system allows each student unique login access to their courses.
For the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission's accreditation review, distance education is a formal educational process. The majority of the instruction (interaction between students and instructors and among students) occurs when students and instructors are not in the same place.
Instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous. A distance education course may use the Internet one-way and two-way transmissions through open broadcast, closed circuit, cable, microwave, broadband lines, fiber optics, satellite, or wireless communications devices, audio conferencing or video cassettes, DVD's, and CDROMs if used as part of the distance learning course or program.
The Distance Education program supports and encourages collaborative efforts involving faculty, staff, and administrators to serve as a model for change and growth at ECSU via distance education delivery methods. Distance education at Elizabeth City State University extends availability and access to convenient course offerings to students isolated from campus due to time and geographic location, utilizing existing, new, and emerging technological strategies.
Our graduate education goal is to ensure academic excellence for each graduate student by providing relevant educational and research experiences. Faculty and staff are eager to serve and prepare students for their chosen career or profession.
At ECSU, graduate education is characterized by small classes and personal interactions conducive to the pursuit of individualized goal attainment. Students and faculty work side-by-side to study and investigate important topics and relevant issues. Within the university environment, students have the freedom to seek new knowledge through innovative research and discovery.
