Online and Hybrid Education
With its strong background in technology, Drexel began offering degrees online as an option for students in 1996. In recognition of our success in setting the bar for online education, Drexel was one of two recipients of the 2010 Sloan Consortium Award for Excellence in Institution-Wide Online Education. As we constantly assess the ways in which we educate students and the ways we can do it better, we now plan to dramatically reposition Drexel e-Learning in the marketplace. With renewed focus on program quality, student retention, and graduation, we will explore how the University and Drexel e-Learning can expand and scale high-quality online offerings, enabling Drexel to further its reach. At the same time, we will build the Drexel network, including our several campuses and outstanding online offerings, to become the premier provider of hybrid academic programs (in-person and online) that will extend Drexel's market presence throughout the United States and globally.
