National Distance Learning Week
Kansas State University Global Campus is celebrating National Distance Learning Week, November 10-14, 2014.
Sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA), National Distance Learning Week helps increase awareness and appreciation for distance learning and how it helps people reach their educational goals. Because of distance education at K-State, thousands of people studying from all 50 states and 16 countries have earned their K-State education—often while balancing full-time commitments with work, family and community.
K-State will be offering the following activities in recognition of 2014 National Distance Learning Week.
