Our Distance Education Format

This program is offered 100% at a distance to meet the needs of working professionals. There is never a time when students are required to come to campus. All courses are delivered through Canvas. A typical class contains links to all course materials including video lectures. There are multiple formats for viewing the lectures which gives you the opportunity to view the lectures on your schedule and in a method that works best for you. The lectures are stored digitally and can be accesss in any of the following ways:

  • On-line Video Streaming: Students are able to view the lectures on-line generally within 24 hours after the on-campus class has finished.
  • Compressed file (zip files): Students can download a compressed folder with the class lecture.

Our courses adhere to the university semester schedules (Fall, Spring and Summer sessions) and deadlines will exist for assignments in each course (courses are not self-paced). The MSETM program does offer short courses that take place over 5 - 8 weeks. This allows additionally flexibility in scheduling as they may gain credit hours while being enrolled for a smaller portion of the regular semester.

Communication with the faculty can be via email, phone, discussion board or occasionally videoconferencing. As a student, you will also have access to the OSU library, the OSU email system, and the Student Information System (SIS) where you can check your grades and pay tuition.

Other Options

Students who live near one of our OSU campuses may also consider taking some courses in a traditional, on-campus, live format. Note that not all courses required for the ETM program are offered on campus.
