ONLINE WORLDWIDE - The University of Nebraska's distance educational platform.
The website provides information on some of the things that set NU apart from other distance education options ... the same professors who teach on campus, the same rigorous courses and high academic standards, and a commitment to serving students, whether online or on campus. Online Worldwide website, www.nebraska.edu/online
More than 265,000 Nebraskans have some college credits but no degree. As a bachelor's degree becomes more and more essential in the workplace, our role as a public university of providing affordable access to a high quality education also becomes more important. Online Worldwide brings information about the distance education offerings of all four campuses together in one place. More than 80 degrees and certificates and more than 1,000 courses can now be accessed online.
You will find a very simple blog article up with all of the information from the University and also the latest article from the pork board. It is all in one place, so it is easier to go to one site, instead of many. We hope this is useful for you. http://Nutritionknowhow.org
