WKU is committed to delivering learning opportunities that fit your life! We achieve this through the delivery of flexible courses, degree programs and student support services for prospective and current online learners.
Online courses are delivered via the internet using Blackboard LMS. The difference between the two options lies in the calendar!
Web classes are semester-based, online classes that follow the same schedule as face-to-face courses - they have specific start and end dates with terms beginning in the fall, winter, spring, and summer. The campus location is listed as "web" in Topnet. Most web classes do not require any face-to-face meetings. However, the professor may require as many as two and still list the class as a web class. If any meetings are required, they will be listed in the "blue notes" just below the class section in the schedule of classes. If this is a concern for you, please contact WKU Online prior to registration at email@example.com or 888-4WKUWEB
On Demand classes provide students the opportunity to earn college credit when and where it is convenient for them. The campus location is listed as "On Demand" in TopNet. There are more than 80 undergraduate and graduate flex-paced courses available completely online. Students have the option to accelerate course completion by finishing in as little as 7 weeks or take advantage of an extended time frame. To learn more, visit wku.edu/ondemand.
