Distance Learning Policy

The University of North Florida supports the development of distance learning courses for the purpose of meeting the needs of our existing students in a manner that is consistent with our mission.  In so doing, distance learning at UNF will: 
  • Employ the best pedagogical practices based on the existing research literature
  • Be developed for courses in which distance learning technologies are compatible with the highest level of student learning, interaction and engagement 
  • Be developed for courses primarily at the upper-division and graduate level with enrollments that ensure the highest level of student interaction and engagement
  • Be developed to increase access for existing students through alternative scheduling options, particularly during the summer term 
  • Be developed to enhance the ability of students to construct fulltime class schedules thus expediting time-to-graduation (and improving UNF’s graduation rates)
