About the Office of Online Learning
The Office of Online Learning facilitates the development and delivery of Wichita State University's online courses and programs by providing tools and resources for students and faculty.
We work closely with faculty and student service units and departments across Wichita State University to ensure that online education delivers the same high level of education and support that
students have come to expect from the faculty and staff here at WSU.
