Online Learning & Strategy

Online Learning & Strategy (OL&S) supports the University mission by promoting excellence in online education at Duquesne. We strategically support schools and academic units as they seek to create and grow fully online or hybrid programs and courses. We work closely with our academic colleagues to design, develop and deliver high-quality, student-centered educational experiences.

Online learning is a valuable learning medium that improves educational access for professionals as well as traditional-aged students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend traditional face-to-face courses on campus. Online students enjoy the ability to choose when, where and how to engage in the learning process.1

Duquesne's internal website, Duquesne Online Resources and Information (DORI), features Online Learning & Strategy resources for faculty, chairs, deans and administrators, as well as for students.

Duquesne Faculty are encouraged to register for Foundations in Online Teaching & Learning (FOTL), an 8-week online faculty development course! Read the Foundations in Online Teaching & Learning Executive Statement to learn more.

All Duquesne Students have access to Essentials in Online Learning at Duquesne, an Online Student Orientation that helps prepare students for success in the online learning environment whether they are enrolled in a fully online program or taking one course online.

Reach out to the Online Learning & Strategy Team to discuss ways that we can support your efforts!
