High Tech, High Touch
Even though you'll earn your degree or certificate through our online program, we work hard to make sure you don't feel disconnected. UIndy is committed to personal attention, and that includes online students.
What you should know about our online programs
- We are committed to keeping classes small. Most classes have an average of 12-18 students.
- Students interact with each other through online forums and discussion boards and sometimes are asked to complete projects as a group, with each student contributing to the final product.
- Coursework will take students away from their computers and out into their own communities, interacting with older adults and the people who serve them.
- Students have access to the UIndy Krannert Memorial Library's databases and journal collections for academic research, as well as other student services, including the UIndy Writing Lab.
- Our professors and instructors work under a 24-hour response policy. If you send a question, they'll respond within 24 hours.
- In order to help students plan their course of study, our Academic Program Director is willing to meet with students in person or via Skype or video conferencing.
- Master's candidates who live outside of Indianapolis can (and have!) presented their Capstone Project via Skype to an audience gathered at the Center for Aging & Community.
